‘Blueberry Hill‘ Mishmountain by First Nations Ojibwe artist James Simon Mishibinijima – Original Woodland Art style painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition to report.
Description by Artist: Mishmountain “Blueberry Hill” – “Ojibway language for Blueberry is Me – Naun – Di’. This berry used to feed spirit through a spirit plate. When celebrating Christmas, Easter or celebrating a full moon celebration, set one plate for the spirit and place it in the forest; say a prayer for the spirit and how you want that spirit to help you, protecting your property and family.” – James Mishibinijima
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Earth is alive, mountains are alive and anthropomorphized. Mountains lay and sleep while accumulating and safekeeping stories, legends, experiences and they are forever keepers of all these secrets and knowledge. Only the few see, only the few willing to see and receive the teachings. Seven are teachings, four are the roots growing. Truly deep and evocative painting by James Mishibinijima presenting to the world deep knowledge that the earth holds.
