Ancestors of the North

Image Size 19" H x 15" W
In many indigenous societies around the world the direction north has to do with winter, the Warrior, darkness and transformation. Susan named this powerful piece of a figure clothed in fur and feathers and half-merged with ravens "Ancestor of the North”, tying it into those attributes.

In Native American cultures, the raven is a trickster and a symbol of metamorphosis, of change and transformation as well as a bringer of messages from the spirit realm. In this piece Susan evokes the idea of death and darkness tied to transformation, with the raven imagery; the infant, on the chest of the figure, represents hope, birth and new life.

Starting from the figure's lower left a series of 7 moons spirals up above the figure's right shoulder – is a motif found sometimes in Susan's work and often representing the passage of time or a spiraled DNA helix, the map of one’s being. A beautifully detailed and powerful image.
