Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Beautiful print using the Stencil print techniques including 3 different colors.   A woman experiences transformation stages into duality and birds protecting her or assisting her to fly … As a metaphor for a spiritual journey or mystic enlightenment, flight, or the suggestion of flight, appears in Inuit art with great frequency.  The presence of spirits of the air or ‘winged spirits’ is significant in Inuit shamanism.  In the traditional nomadic, hunting lifestyle, the shaman is the principal healer and visionary. A key to survival, the shaman is the intermediary between the Inuit people and the greater forces. The spirit helper or spirit animal and shaman have the ability to transform, and often appear to fly or to have wings.  Capable of flight, supernatural beings enjoy limitless freedom in the Inuit spirit realm.
