Description
This spectacular jaguar sculpture is an amazing work of art. The look of wild determination in his eyes and the unrestrained ferociousness displayed in the act of killing is fiercely realistic. His stature exudes a monumental quality of unprecedented strength and stamina. He stands with four legs widely spaced apart ready to defend himself. Aggressive and powerful, this jaguar displays all the qualities that an ancient warrior may want to possess. The artist in depicting beautiful designs all over the jaguar has paid special attention. The entire sculpture is full of dynamic energy. Such an extraordinary work of art was certainly used during important rituals by a person of high rank and authority in society. - (PF.4166)
