Night Punisher

Carved and painted from balsa wood. This evocative rendering of the respected black panther and known as the night punisher of those who break taboo. This fauna-inspired diablito is a homage to these mythically potent and respected animals of the forests of this tribe’s territory: kurà (jaguar/panther in the Brúnkajk language) – represents utter stealth and deadly hunting tactics.
