The Jade Museum presents the exhibition “The Eye of the Jaguar” by Ecuadorian artist Nelson Román. The exhibition will be presented from August 11th to October 29th thanks to the collaboration of the Embassy of Ecuador and the Jade Museum.
The exhibition consists of 25 two-dimensional works grouped into two series called “The Lovers of Sumpa” and “Integral Naturalism”. “The Eye of the Jaguar” refers to that mythical animal present in the imagination of most of the indigenous peoples of America, with which the artist also maintains a special bond.
This initiative was born from Mr. Bolívar Vicente Torres Cevallos, Ambassador of Ecuador in Costa Rica, who proposed it as a way to strengthen cultural ties and links between both nations, within the framework of the celebration of the day of the First Cry of Independence of Quito, also called National Day in which the signing of the declaration of independence of Ecuador is commemorated.
The presence of these works today in Costa Rica has been possible thanks to collaborative work not only from interested governments but also from several instances that provided their support to bring them from Ecuador.
