Jaguar Woman

When I first starting doing ritual and calling the four directions, Jaguar often showed up in the fiery south. I later learned that Jaguar is an important part of South and Central American spirituality. At some point (was it before or after our trip to Peru?) I realized that she was a key power animal and totem for me, for like the Hindu goddess Kali Ma ,Red Tara and Sekhmet, she embodies fierce compassion. I call on her often for strength and wisdom. This one kicks ass!

A postcards and 8.5×11″ prints of this one are available.
