Details

"I depict a fearless jaguar against a starry sky. This is one of the most beautiful animals that exist — strong, powerful, with a profound gaze," Marina Pallares confides. Working in black and white, she creates a small-scale linoleum block print. The feline held a special place in many Mesoamerican cultures. A resident of the Yucatan peninsula, the small spotted cat was venerated by the ancient Maya, who called it Balam. The renowned Aztec Jaguar warriors, an elite infantry comprised of pre-Hispanic noblemen, wore helmets in the shape of the jaguar, or oceotl. And the Olmec "were-jaguar" — half human, half cat — is a recurrent theme in their art.

"Love Marina Pallaress work & this is no exception"

I have two other prints by Marina Pallares, and I love them both. This small linoleum block print is no exception. It looks even better in person, with a remarkable level of detail, and I cant wait to get it framed.

"I loved this cat."

I bought 3 of these, two as gifts and one for myself. The expression on this cats face is priceless. What he is thinking will be your own interpretation, and will say more about you, than him. But he is obviously thinking.

"Lost during framed process"

I was on my way to have this beautiful jaguar to be professionally framed when the strong persistent wind blew it away. It hurt me very bad. It was very unique but for the price, I will replace it with a larger print at less cost.

"Beautiful"

Beautiful and detailed jaguar on VERY high quality paper. I have her little dog, parrot, and octopus prints also, and they are all great. Because it s a little print, I framed using an 8x8 mat and frame.

"Lovely little octopus!"

This is one of three pieces that I have bought of Marina Pallares work. I pretty much love all of her prints! This little octopus is super charming and makes me smile every time I look at it.

"“The Cat, Tequila Lotto”"

I recently received Marina Pallares “The Cat, Tequila Lotto” and couldn t be happier! Marina is a wonderfully clever artist whose works are thoughtful and in many ways unexpected. I have purchased several of her pieces, both for myself and as gifts, and will continue to do so.
