Panther - Symbol of Courage

The Panther has long been a symbol of courage, strength, and mystery.  Myths and legends of panthers of all kinds are to be found from ancient Egypt to Greece, from Africa into medieval Europe and Asia, and throughout North and South America.  These stories have informed, frightened, and entertained people for millenia.  In the physical world, the black panther is a rare color variant of the jaguar.  Its rarity adds to the mystique of this secretive spirit. 

In the metaphysical world, the Black Panther is associated with the moon, and with the inner dimensions of our spirits.
