The Jaguar

October 20, 2016

The most magical of the big cats

The jaguar roams as the day turns to dusk, and twilight shadows shimmer on its skin. It's no wonder that this most beautiful and mysterious of the big cats is a hero of folktales from all the lands he roams.

See the three tumbling jaguar designs as you peer into the DM Twilight Collection.

Welcoming the DM Twilight Collection

falling jaguar Twilight Collection

Some of us bounce out of bed ready to embrace the early morning, and are at their most productive during the ante meridiem period.  Others sluggishly drag themselves out of their slumber, failing to hit a maximum productive peak until later in the day, (I shan't disclose what time of day I'm writing this piece).  But regardless of whether you're a 'lark' or an 'night owl', the human species is fundamentally a 'diurnal' animal, i.e. active during the day. Although did you know, your pet dog - if left to their own devices - would naturally be more active not during the day or night, but during twilight!

Peer into Daniel's new Twilight Collection - capturing this darker time of day.

Daniel's badger design is available as an art print, greetings card or placemat and coaster set.

Teaching morals through myth

Moon Rabbit

The Rabbit or Hare is a popular companion in the DM Collection but how did it its imprint come to be on the moon's surface? We need to look to myth and its origins for the answer. Mankind, (the ultimate adapter), studied the behaviour of their fellow forest dwelling animals, and learnt many invaluable survival skills from them.  They made up stories involving the beasts, and many tales were passed from generation to generation, teaching man what to look for in nature, and most importantly what to avoid.
