In Mayan art on wall and cave murals, and on vases, the jaguar is sometimes shown in its naturally occurring color phases of black (The Jaguar God of the Underworld) or light (The Jaguar God of the Upper World). Both jaguar gods were regarded as necessary beings, without as much value judgment or labeling as to their aspects of good or evil. Both were associated with the Creator as his helpers in forming the world, and they helped promote the changes necessary for continuation of the world.
This is something I started working on a long while back, using some very beautiful photographs as Major reference. Had it not been for them to look from I would have been screwed. I'd give links, but I think the images have been taken down.
Photographer of reference images.
Who spent about collective hours of about 2weeks doing this one pic. My eyes are still bleeding and I'm still sleep deprived
