El Dorado Imports has for 20+ years created a very successful wholesale business now headquartered in Jalisco, Mexico. We work mostly with families and indigenous groups throughout the country who have been creating these traditional products for generations. We have visited their Talleres and established our relationships based on honesty, good working conditions, quality product control and their ability to fulfill orders in a timely manner.
These beautiful jaguars are created by the Torres family in Jalisco, México. They are the finest ceramic (fired clay) and hand painted.Throughout pre-Columbian cultures from the Olmec, Maya, Mixtec to the Aztecs the Jaguar was perceived as a symbol of power and courage. They were feared and respected animals and many Mayan gods were identified with them. Normally, the jaguar was associated with the night (being a nocturnal hunter), with caverns and the underworld, where there were the souls of the ancestors. The jaguar was also represented in these cultures in their artistic expressions such as paintings, sculptures, pottery, and bas-reliefs on their temples. They are the subject of many myths and are the symbols of water and fertility.
