    Smile were-jaguar

    Dear teachers,

    I am writing to ask the following:

    1. Typical Olmec are features jaguar, thick-lipped warrors and goatee bearded men. Often jaguar and human characteristics are combined in were-jaguar babies and children.
    --What does "were-jaguar babies" mean?

    2. They were probably the first muralists and cave painters in Mexico, and also produced statues in jade.
    --What does "statues" in jade mean?
