Graphite Moon

Stained Yellow Cedar, Acrylic, Abalone

“The Moon is a recurring figure in my work and for good reason.  It has long been an important part of our mythology. Long ago the Moon was born from a star being father and a human mother who dared to venture into the sky world with her sister. The women came back longing for their families where the moon was raised as a child among the people known as dakwibalth (Changer/Transformer). There are many stories that put him as a central figure forever changing the world in his time. I am often taken by our mythology when I admire the moon rising in the twilight as night falls.”
