Chilam Balam (Boca del Jaguar)
Mixed Media Illustration,2012
"Balam" it's the mayan word for "Jaguar".

The Chilam Balam was a book mayan priests used for rituals. It can be translated to "Jaguar's Mouth" or "Sacred Jaguar".  The jaguar was the most important animal for mayans, therefore was considered and important & sacred being.

This piece was concieved using this concept, generating a Jaguar from different organic elements until it was percieved as a whole, as a sacred being born from nature.

Enjoy and tell me which version you like most.
