Description

Turtle Lodges‘ by First Nations Metis artist Leah Marie Dorion – Original painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts

Condition:       No condition to report.

Description by Artist:    ‘Turtle Lodges‘ –  “The turtle is an important symbol of the earth and Indigenous peoples have expressed their kinship with the earth and the living world through the formation of family clans.  The Anishinabe call these family clans “dodems”. This painting honours the family who are members of the Turtle Clan Dodem. This painting is created to look like the original rock paintings of First Nations people.”
