Notes from DaVic Gallery:     Simple and beautiful representation of the Tree of Life by Jim Oskineegish with four intense background colours and only showing a portion of the tree with two branches.  Most noticeable is the life surrounding this portion of the tree with two birds that could be robins and five butterflies.  Butterfly is a youthful spirit who symbolizes transformation from youth to adulthood. Butterfly is associated with the innocence and playfulness of childhood, and we are taught that even as adults, we need to nurture our inner child.  The Robin Nation teach humans about the joy of using your voice. Robin reminds us that, “Our voice is a medicine.” Robin encourages humanity to sing out their good thoughts into the universe every day as the morning sun rises. Robin teach us that it is natural law to use our voices every day to welcome the morning sun back into our lives. They teach us to do all our greetings with gratefulness and respect.
