Shamanic Transformation Series

The series entitled ‘Shamanic Transformation’ was again inspired by a dream – translucent figures through which light emanated, the figures more like shells than solid forms. The dream, I realized, referred to the Native American propensity to perceive all things as having spirit, a perception that places humans on the same plane as all created things. Thus the figures emerge from a shell/egg form. As a shell joins to harbour its life form, so do these figures join to harbour spirit. The figures in this series are in changing relationship to one another, some more conjoined than others. This refers to the integration of mind, body and spirit. The more we evolve, the more aligned we become in mind, body and spirit.
