So after visiting the local Mint Museum of Art in my hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina… I was inspired by all of the Mayan artifacts being displayed. A particular subject of interest for Mayan people in their artwork were jaguars. The pre-Columbian Maya civilization had various jaguar gods, in addition to jaguar demi-gods, protectors, and transformers.
This is my own little spin on it. :P
