Como Los Acaros by Mivala Como Los Acaros by Mivala
(picture to be updated)
Won a few awards for this little guy. It took me a few weeks to complete, as I started it in the era of no paintbrushes. Acrylics and varnish, with a few gemstones on the top.

This was ORIGINALLY a Ham from Toy Story piggy bank. I converted it into a sacred Jaguar and just went from there.

I have an artist's statement for this which I'll put in this desc. later on. I used images from a combination of Aztec, Moche, Incan....all sorts of South American cultures. Beautiful perspectives!

wow, this is so beautiful! The mythologies and shamanisitic aspects of various pre-columbian cultures have always been of great interest to me :) .
