Project Details

    Duality Pt. 1

    Illustration
    Date : December 2013
    Media : Ink & Digital
    Size : 16" x 20"
    Categories : Illustration
    Prints Available : Yes - contact for info.

    This piece was created to show how the same creature, in this case a Barn Owl, is viewed differently by different cultures. Here I chose to show the views of the Dakota Hidatsa and Hopi Native American perspectives.

    The Dakota Hidatsa people viewed the Burrowing Owl as a protective spirit for their warriors. While the Hopi people viewed the Burrowing Owl as the god of the Dead, and symbol of death.

    To illustrate each of these views, I chose to use natural symbolism.

    Hornbills

    Illustration
    Date : March 2014
    Media : Ink & Digital
    Size : 18" x 24"
    Categories : Illustration
    Prints Available : Yes - contact for info.

    This piece was created to show the importance of Hornbills is Nagaland culture. The Hornbill is so important to their culture; they hold an annual festival named after the bird.

    They see the bird as globally respected, and it has a part in most of their tribe's folklore. They symbolize beauty, grandeur and alertness.

    To illustrate each of these views, I chose to use natural symbolism.
