Description

Mother and Daughter Sharing Stories of Family and Friends‘ by First Nations Anishinaabe artist James Jacko – Original Woodland Art style painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

Condition:       No condition to report.

Description by Artist:  ‘Mother and Daughter Sharing Stories of Family and Friends’ –  “The Mother is speaking, storytelling, and sharing experiences in life to her daughter.  The main circle in the center represents the Creator and the 13 smaller circles symbolize teachings, history and time, in other artworks I like to call those “symbols of time”. The seven spikes in between and around them symbolize the Seven Teachings, or Gifts, or Grandfathers, but also are trees that are still in growth … just like teachings and lessons in life.  The three mounds in the foreground symbolize the land that was before them, and the flowers the daughter is holding symbolize her Love for all things. ” – James Jacko

Notes from DaVic Gallery:    Great stories and write-up by artist Nokomis, in her section on Native Women, Their Roles and Their Influence,  link: Native Women.   Heartwarming beautiful detailed work … careful beading … one can look at this painting everyday and discover new details.
