‘The Hunter‘ 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 Wolf and Raven working together out on the land. The Raven would help the Wolf to hunt by showing him where the Caribou are. Then the wolf would leave plenty of food for the Raven’s efforts. The Ancestors on the hillside cliffs surrounded by the Grandfather Rocks.
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.
