The Nahual, pronounced [nah-wahl] is a mystical creature who acts as a spiritual guide in many Mesoamerican religions. While every person has a nahual, they need to seek out their spirit animal to connect with it.  Many believe the way to find your nahual is to find a isolated and peaceful place to sleep, and the animal that appears in your dream will be your spirit animal. The spirit animal can be any animal, or a mixture of animals.  It is often depicted as a lion-like creature with human features, like in the Mexican ceramics above.  We loved these creatures, so chose to make our nahual in a similar style.  We hope he’ll inspire you and your children to find your own animal spirit!
