Siamese Champagne

Plagued by nightmares, I found myself confronted by giant, mechanical, maniacal, babbling heads.

Jaguar God of the Underworld
ink, coloured pencils and graphite on 67 lb cover stock

One of the oldest Maya deities, he was the ruler of the Underworld, and was associated with terrestrial fire and war. He was assumed to be the "Night Sun", the shape the sun would take on it's nightly journey through the Underworld.

To the Aztec, he was known as Tepeyollotl, god of earthquakes, echoes and jaguars. Tepeyollotl was the jaguar aspect of the god Tezcatlipoca and was associated with a wide range of concepts, including the night sky, the night winds, hurricanes, the north, the earth, obsidian, enmity, discord, rulership, divination, temptation, jaguars, sorcery, beauty, war and strife :)

A god of violence and valour.
