Black Jaguar with Monarch Butterflies
This piece is of a black jaguar wearing a feather-work crown which potentially belonged to Moctezuma II, the Aztec emperor at the time of the Spanish Conquest. However, there’s some debate about that.
Accompanying the jaguar are monarch butterflies which migrate between south Canada and northeast US to Mexico each year.
This piece celebrates two endangered species. Black jaguars have been hunted and their habitats have been destroyed. This has led to a massive decline in population. Many factors have contributed to the decline in monarchs, including climate change, the deforestation of habitat in Mexico, and the loss of native plants in the US that monarchs rely on to feed and reproduce.
My hope with this series is to bring an empathetic eye to creatures that are impacted by human behavior. I donate a portion of the sales from each painting and print from my Royals series to WildAid, an organization helping protect endangered species around the world.
