The panther is not only an emblem of calm power and sophistication, it is also a symbol of incredible beauty, femininity and motherhood.
Panthers are, in fact, leopards and jaguars having an excess of melanin that makes them black, and beings who have the bad attitude of a lion. Of all the big cats, the panthers are the most opportunistic hunters and they have no problem getting a good meal from a deer, a human or even from one of his parents, the lion. They have a secret nature and often choose to hide from view, leaving only dead prey or footprints on their way. It is this secret behavior that makes the panther a dreaded beast in the jungle. Many pre and post Colombian cultures have revered this magnificent animal for its fearless nature and incredible hunting skills.
This panther image is often used in heraldry. Even if the animal is not native to Europe, the panther is a central figure of heraldry and flags from many European countries and ancient noble families. Countries such as Croatia, Slovenia and Austria have coats of arms representing the panther in a powerfull pose. This may be due to the fact that in medieval times, panthers were often seen as symbols of Christ and as the deadly enemies of dragons, which were considered the representation of the devil in some circles. Placing a panther on a coat of arms was a creative way of representing the spiritual connection of a family or a country with the beliefs of Christianity. Panthers and dragons were often represented fighting, symbolizing the struggle between good and evil. The images tended to be rather stylized, as many of the middle-age Europeans had rarely had the chance to see a panther in person.
Panthers are also emblems of freedom, revolution and social equality. At the time of the civil rights movements in the US, the Black Panther Party (Black Panthers Party) was a group of social revolutionaries calling for an end to injustice and social inequality.
More importantly, the panther is a symbol of maternity and protection. It's no wonder that in the famous history of Jungle bookMowgli's guardian was the black panther Bagheera. In the wild, these powerful animals are fiercely territorial and would defend their young until death, if necessary. In many cultures around the world, the moon and its phases represent the feminine condition and the divine feminine. Women are thinkers: they spend their time carefully weighing the pros and cons of every decision, no matter how small. Those who are natural thinkers are often quiet and reserved – like the panthers, who spend their days in the jungle undergrowth and live a lonely life. They are secret and mysterious like women. That's why black panthers are seen as creatures of the moon. Their calm and reserved nature has become an emblem of femininity and a symbol of seductive and attractive charm of women.
