JAGUAR IN DRESS UNIFORM

Acrylic on canvas 80 cm x 100 cm

The jaguar, in pre-Columbian culture, is associated with the figure of the God of War and is a symbol of power. In this painting, the symbolism of the military uniform reminds us of the “State Portrait”, a painting of an official figure (important personalities, notably kings, governors, etc.), decked out in their finest (official ceremonial dress, honors, coat of arms), with the aim of enhancing their power, wealth, splendor.
