Jaguar with Three Cubs Handbuilt Fired and Painted Pottery

by Esperanza Pérez

Ceramics

Ht. 8" x W. 15" x D. 11"

 

 Jaguars used to roam Chiapas in abundance. The small village of Amatenango, Chiapas has a long tradition of creating almost life size jaguars, along with chickens, iguanas, monkeys, and armadillos in clay. The animals have a captivating naïve yet life-like quality, with gesture and eyes that are both amusing and arresting. Artist Esperanza Pérez is a young woman whose work is of the highest quality and who is a delight to meet. She is earnest about preserving traditional Amatenango animals, while some in her town have unfortunately turned to making commercial tourist souvenirs
