"The Balam or Jaguar is an important mystical animal. There are Mayan, Aztec, and Incan temples built for the jaguar. In Mayan culture, the jaguar is considered the ruler of the Underworld, and there were even Mayan priests called balam who presided over the greatest rituals. Balam represents the night sun and darkness, and its colors and values represent a very significant aspect of Mexico for me. The animal moves stealthily in the dark and is the most powerful animal in the jungle. The jaguar is a symbol of courage and passion for many Mexicans and, for some, it's the animal that will bring them to the afterlife when they bid the world farewell."
