Condition: No condition to report.
Description by Artist: Mishmountain “Little La Cloche” – “This area or island called Goat Island was a sacred burial ground only to bury Chief and medicine men in the past. Between 1900 and 1945 non-native people found this sacred site and took regalia such as medicine bags, chief regalia found their way to the UK some housed in museums and art collections.” – 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.
