Grandfather Stones‘ 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:     Grandfather Stones – Diptych : “In our everyday travels in this world or just in your backyard, presence of our ancestors are around us.  Every now and then we come across a perfectly round stone laying on the ground. To find such stone is a gift to us to the finder from the spirit world, the message says, you will be asked to do something very important, prepare yourself for the task in hand.” – James Simon Mishibinijima

Notes from DaVic Gallery:    I try hard to remember if I might have come across one such stones in my path before embarking in this such Native Art gallery.  I do remember receiving signs, but not sure about the stones as I was unaware of such symbol.
