Jose Canil carves a fierce sculpture inspired by the Maya belief that jaguars protect fields and mountains, as well as harvest. Canil carves the pinewood sculpture by hand and he applies a mixture of soot and water to achieve an antique illusion.

Story Behind the Art:
Born in Chichicastenango, Guatemala, Jose Canil I learnt my craft from my father. 'When I was younger he would only allow me to sandpaper a piece, and as I got older he would let me paint too. It wasn't until I was older that he'd finally let me carve the wood. I remember well the first piece I ever did completely on my own: an angel. I put it among the things my father took to the market to sell, and then I lost track of it! I hope it got sold to someone who appreciated it because at the time I was only an apprentice.'

    I didn't realize it would hang on a wall. I love it! It goes with the Aztec decor and is very colorful. This is a wonderful piece and I'm very glad that I purchased it.
