Notes from DaVic Gallery: ‘Instructing Shaman Helper’ – Piona’s work narrates the stories he heard about his family when he was growing up out on the land. In the vivid blue print, he portrays his great-great-grandfather, who is instructing the bird on how to find animals. The bird, thus empowered, would be able to show hunters where to find food.
