Magaly Fuentes & Jose Calvo: Zapotec Jaguar

Handsome jaguar sculpture by Jose Calvo & Magaly Fuentes. T Magaly is the sister of Zeny, Julia and Ivan Fuentes and daughter of Epifanio. Her painting is wonderful. This bear is decorated in earthy tones that contrast with the Native American turquoise coloring at the top of the figure. The design is inspired by Zapotec fretwork motifs. On the back of the jaguar there is a beautiful reproduction of a Pre-Columbian shield. Beautiful!
