"The jaguar, to the Mayans, was a powerful symbol of ferocity, strength and valor. ... As a god of the Mayan underworld, the jaguar ruled the celestial forces of night and day. As such, it represents control, confidence and leadership. Mayan warriors wore jaguar skins into battle as a sign of honor and courage."
