Cupisnique - two Jaguar Cubs with an Anaconda

Cupisnique - Two jaguar cubs wrestling with an anaconda. Jaguar impersonator holding a serpent from Kaminaljuyu, Guatemala and 2 small jaguars from Cupisnique, Peru holding an anaconda - note similar iconography. The Peruvian culture is far older. Another version of Stela ! Izapa, the Storm-bringer. I asked an Aztec dancer about this footwear, he replied, "Those are alligator shoes".
