Description


Speaking to the Ancestors‘ by First Nations Dene artist John Rombough – Original Dene Art style painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts


Condition:       No condition to report.


Description by Artist:   “The three Ancestor’s speak to the wolf, welcoming him into the land, surrounded by all the Grandfather rocks.  Everything has a spirit within, capturing the moment in time.  The tree line is a beautiful place with some areas untouched.  The colors are different stages we go through life, everyone has a different story to tell.  The wolf is enjoying his stories with the Ancestors while a greyjay watches over.” – John Rombough.


Notes from DaVic Gallery:     Complex, vibrant, symbolic … so many details and hidden symbolism. Can you see the three ancestors watching from the hillsides?  Can you identify the Grandfather rocks?

John’s background and community is Chipewyan Dene.
