Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and moreover, a way of life. It is a way to connect with nature and all of creation.
The true shamans were reported to join their spirit with the Great Spirit, and with the very essence of nature itself. When they created their sand paintings they were lending a hand in the structure of their own reality. This is true today with spiritual artists and their work. As Picasso said, “everything you can imagine is real.”
The Shaman (or Sunset Sage as some call him) was created with a wet in wet process, using alcohol inks on reclaimed packaging.
Why reclaimed packaging? Simply, because I believe we do not fully utilize our resources.
Alcohol ink, because to me the result of the process is effective in depth, color, and the serene energy conveyed.
The image is an abstract impressionistic representation of both a sunset on a day with high clouds, and a spirit warrior creating a sand painting in the sky.
