Painting was created for a lovely family I know who have been collecting my work for a while now. The painting is a reflection of the sacredness of the family unit. A crest so to speak.
The eagles represent the visionary within us all. They mate for life, eagles so, loyalty is a strong principle for this visionary. The birds reflect the songs and beauty of Mother Earth, that it is good medicine to live right with our earth Mother. The moose represents the provisions being shared by creation. It is important for future generations to know this, to live in harmony with our relatives upon her. All my relations, MAJ
