Giovanni Melchor: Fierce Jaguar

Striking, contemporary fierce jaguar by artist Giovanni Melchor. The body of this feline has very delicate graduations of tonality that contrast beautifully with the bold black line work. The face is spectacular. Jaguars are a very popular figure to carve in Oaxaca, but few have such a perfect face as this one. They tend to be bold and big, this one is expressive, delicate, proportionate.
