Large Oil on Canvas, Mayan Jaguar by Kindrie Grove 2002

$5,100

About

Very large oil on canvas, ancient tableau, Jaguar by Kindrie Grove, Canadian Artist. Large oil painting that depicts a Mayan Jaguar. Made in 2002. The architectural background for the Jaguar is ancient Mayan, featuring the Jaguar God wearing a feathered headdress. To the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica, the jaguar was more than just an animal; it was divine. Almost every ancient Mesoamerican civilization revered the jaguar in some way. The Olmec (circa 1200-400 B.C.) heavily featured jaguars in their art and religion. Sculptures of cats were popular, as were depictions of deities who appear to be half human, half jaguar, which scholars describe as were-jaguars. The jaguar was believed to be an animal of the stars as well as of the earth, playing a highly prominent role in the mythology of the Aztec and Mexica peoples roughly 700 years ago. Jaguar dens are sometimes found in caves, which linked them to the earth and fertility: The fierce Aztec earth goddess Tlaltecuhtli is often represented with a jaguar’s claws. The cat’s dual nature connected it to transitions, like the daily cycle of the sun rising to usher in the day and setting as it gave way to night. In time the jaguar became absorbed into a complex dual mythology, representing both light and darkness, heaven and earth. Not framed canvas only stretched on wooden frame. Kindrie Grove Studios are in Canada, contemporary artist Painter, Sculptor, professional artist and art instructor. "Honor and respect for the creatures we love flows through brush and tool to commemorate our animal companions". Comes with certificate of authenticity from the artist,
