For a long time now, I have had an interest in researching pre-Hispanic and early Mesoamerican art. Specifically glyphs, murals, cave art, and stone carvings. This Mayan jaguar you see is one of my first explorations into this territory. Keeping with time period colors, I rolled with their use of rust, bone white, and teal. Many animals were celebrated in these cultures, so this is just one of many to come. I am very excited to continue on with this line of exploration.
Here is a sample of the fantastic reference material I’ve been collecting.
