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.
Love these little prints
Another great little print on QUALITY paper. I framed with an 8x8 wooden frame, matted to 4x4. I also have her little dog, parrot, octopus and jaguar, and will be gifting several for Christmas. They are all great. These are detailed and beautiful.
Beautiful and unique
This is a great little print on VERY quality paper. Since it is small, I used a 8x8 mat and frame, and it looks great.

Mexico Fine Art Linoleum Print Dog Painting by NOVICA, "Little Dog"
Splashing in the surf, a frisky young dog enjoys a day on the shore in this whimsical small-scale linoleum block print. "Who doesn't enjoy watching a little dog that likes water?" says Marina Pallares. "I experienced this myself with a friend at the beach. We took my friend's dog. There's nothing happier for the animal than to wade in the waves and dig holes in the sand!"
Tiled "Perrito" in Spanish.
Bold line takes flight, its airy message one of peace. Merging the forms of woman and dove, Jacira Baptista creates a design of sublime beauty. "The woman dove turns to herself in search of peace. She flies to where nothing can interrupt her moment of harmony," Baptista confides. Titled "A Pomba" in Portuguese.
Part of a limited edition.
Mexico 4-Inch Signed Linoleum Block Print of a Jaguar, "Jaguar"
"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 The renowned Aztec Jaguar warriors, an elite infantry comprised of pre-Hispanic noblemen, wore helmets in the shape of the jaguar, or And the Olmec "were-jaguar" — half human, half cat — is a recurrent theme in their art.
Jacinta Baptista celebrates feminine beauty and soul through her unique artistry. Stylized images merge into a violin and vanity dresser, an analogy of surreal implications. Baptista's art is delicate and precise yet demanding of strength and attitude.
Titled "As violinistas" in Portuguese.
