Little Jaguar- Animal Spirits Series


Jaguars are the largest wildcat of the Americas. Traditionally they traveled as far north as southern Arizona. In the twentieth century their populations in the US were almost eliminated by hunters and aggressive wildlife management policies. In recent years they’ve reappeared in the remote mountains of southern Arizona near the border with Mexico. This sculpture is dedicated to the jaguars of those borderlands.

“Little Jaguar” is a small sculpture. When removed from its stand it fits in the palm of a hand. It’s carved from found aspen wood, painted with layers of iridescent acrylics then finished with wax. The sculpture is removed from the steel stand for shipping.
