Jaguar, 2023


Oil Paint


60.96 x 45.72 cm

Year Created



“Jaguar” depicts the title character in the midst of the Amazon jungle. The background reveals a desolated scene: the consequences and horrors that come with the illegal mining that has destroyed the Venezuelan land in recent years. The Jaguar’s appearance is embellished with symbols that allude to spirituality and political salvation. These characteristics, alongside the basket filled with bread flour and cassava, transform the animal into an entity that brings hope to the disaster around.
