Description by Artist: “A females used to wish that she could become a bird and she became ine but she fell and landed on her beak first. That is how she became an owl. As told by Mialia Jaw (Where I was in elementary school).” – Ningeokuluk Teevee
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Beautiful composition where most white space is used to build the head of the owl that also wears a coat of feathers like leafs. A braid and a female breast hint this is a human female transforming into owl.
