Travelling at Night
‘Travelling at Night‘ by First Nations Dene artist John Rombough – Original Dene Art style painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: Mother and younger son take a moment to look over the land. Waiting for the snow to harden so that the trail would be better at night. The Raven travels as well with them, guiding them along the way. While the passed on family Ancestors watch over them.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Complex, vibrant, symbolic … so many details and hidden symbolism. Can you see the two ancestor spirits watching from the hillsides? Can you identify the Grandfather rocks?
John’s background and community is Chipewyan Dene.
