Spanning from South to North America, the Jaguar / Panther represents the connection to the ancestors who reside in the spirit world. But it carries an even deeper symbology because it guards the “gates” to that underworld, a metaphysical world (Xibalba in Mayan) of a different dimension or realm. With my art in general, I’m crossing cultures and showing commonality. The overall message has to do with very old and powerful Native American concepts that revolve around a holistic understanding of the universe and the human relationship to all life forms, all levels and planes of knowing, all cycles, seasons.. …all the elements. Because of the state of the environment, this philosophy, which says we are part of everything and everything is part of us, is equally relevant to people of all walks of life!! There’s another aspect of this piece that directly connects to modern art and science. The geometric drawing within the panther face is inspired by the “tesseract” or “hyper cube,” a configuration that represents the fourth dimension, or spirit plane. Original Medium: mixed media composite (digital hybrid combining hand rendered art & photographic imagery)
