Item Details
This mural was done for the Akumal Arts Festival in November 2019 at the secondary school in Akumal, Mexico. This was the second mural Cecilia has painted for this mural festival that is located in the Caribbean part of Mexico. Cecilia's mural design was influenced and inspired by the first jungle adventure she had back in 2018. She was also inspired by the rich history of Mayan land and culture in Akumal. The portrait in the middle is of a mayan goddess who represents the guardian of the jungle. Her jaguars at her sides represent strength and the embodiment of the jungle. The mayans worshiped jaguars as the rulers of the underworld, night and day. This was Cecilia's first school mural and she can't wait to bring more art to other schools around the globe!
