with Collared Redstart and Flora
Boca people of Costa Rica have danced with this jaguar mask every year
since the Spanish Conquest. This animal represents warrior traits of power
and strength and is a communicant between the living and the dead. In
addition, the jaguar, like Prometheus, is thought to have given humans
power over fire. Amid tropical flowers, a beautiful little Costa Rican
Collared Redstart listens intently to the Dream of the Jaguar.
