Yreina Cervántez’s "Danza Ocelotl", facilitated by master printer Stephen Grace, includes several "ocelotl"—jaguar, in the Nahuatl language—that in Mesoamerican culture was seen as a symbol of power. The jaguars surround a self-portrait of Cervántez holding a circular mask in front of her face. Within the disc, an orange feline creates the shape of a nose beneath a third-eye. This combination of symbols, vibrant color, and glitter together express Chicana pride and power.
