I discovered this intriguing bit of werecat mythology while doing research for the forthcoming, final installment of my Werecat series: The Sim Ru Prophecy. In Chavin culture, a pre-Incan civilization that resided in the region of modern day Peru, potters made clay jars shaped like seated, curled cats. Like ancient Amerindian artwork elsewhere, the cat’s head is exaggerated, almost cartoonish, but the rosette spots are suggestive of the jaguar, which thrived in the region at the time.
Exclusively on my site, you can take a look at one of the scenes between the cover of The City of Seven Gods.
Read the opening scene from Poseidon and Cleito. There’s one day left to enter the contest for #PoseidonWeek!
My Pinterest board for Poseidon and Cleito, and the story behind it.
I had a lot of fun creating this board for Werecat with photos, artwork, people and places that give a flavor of the story.
