In the 8-foot tall, brightly colored, wooden cutout titled, “The Young Jaguar Is Being Offered a Human Sacrifice to Please the Mayan Gods,” artist Andy Villarreal has painted an abstract of a pyramid with a jaguar standing on top. The animal’s mouth is wide open, ready to devour the Mayan citizen held aloft by a Mayan priest.

At the bottom of the artwork, another Mayan priest stands on a red, double-headed serpent encased within a window on the cosmos. Stars fill the space behind him as he oversees the frightening scene above him.

Villarreal’s fascination with Mayan culture and heritage is depicted in his exhibition, “Galactic Mayan Gods,” featuring numerous 8-foot and 10-foot-tall works on wood along with some smaller silk screen prints.
