This is the first piece of my "Shaman Series" and is representative of the ancient healing arts of Polynesia - I use natural healing protocols in my own life and have instilled that energy into this work.
Lively colors, feathers, and symbols combine to create powerful imagery and ignite the imagination. A fused glass disc, 1/4" thick and 8" in diameter serves as the base for the other elements.
In indigenous tribes, among other things, feathers symbolize communication with the Creator. The lightning bolt symbolizes a Divine gift, and the spirals indicate fertility and the goddess....
It is thought by many that the healers were generally men; historically, there have been as many females in that role as males - this piece is a "Medicine Woman" and honors the role of that gender in safeguarding her tribe.
She wears a necklace of authentic coyote claws; the coyote is a "transformer", assisting the Shaman in the transformation of a negative situation into a positive (sickness to health).
The "waterglass" background symbolizes the power of transition - the ability to change from solid to liquid to gas - a complete metamorphosis.
Frame dimensions are 18"h x 18"w; the piece is ready to hang.
