Moon - Linocut Print

The Toba people from the Gran Chaco  region in Argentina once described the Moon as a pot-bellied man whose blue intestines could be seen through his translucent skin. His enemy was the celestial Jaguar, the spirit of death. Every now and then, the Jaguar would spring up to attack him and the Moon would defend himself with a spear carved from the soft wood of the Bottle Tree. He also bore a club made from the same soft wood which was much too light to cause harm. The Jaguar tore at the Moon’s body, pieces of which fell to earth as meteorites.
