Huichol Jaguar Set Glass Sculpture

It’s been a long journey, but after a couple months of research, the story goes like this.... The sun in the center of the jaguar head radiating a blue aura of Great Spirit. Hands reaching out from either side of the sun, being struck by lightning. Charged with its intense energy, the hands throw out the rainbow arrowheads, meaning the balanced force of the white light. Purple energy radiating off the lightning bolts for its higher illumination. The scorpion is nestled between the eyes on the snout crawling out from underneath the agaves is a reminder to the gatherer/roadman. The fire around the mouth of the jaguar symbolizes the burning of the hunger, and the water bordering the fire quenching the thirst with the sacred dance of life. In the water I put the deer head for its symbiotic relationship with the jaguar. At the bottom of the piece is just a little something to honor the red-tail hawk in color. On its head, I put the blue crown for communication, and a purple aura off it for illumination. The shaman is placed in the center of the base of the agave with the directional totem between him and the hawk. On the very front of the base there is another scorpion in the agave leaf nestled next to a peyote button. In the center of the base there is a peyote pattern that I worked with. Each leaf on the back-side has directional patterns. I'm fond of these because they play tricks with the eyes. The piece stands a foot tall on the base, and the base is 8 inches wide. The piece itself is made with borosilicate (Pyrex) glass and stands 9" tall and is 6-1/2" from bowl to jaguar snout. Finished May 8, 2007.
