What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.

‘Great Bear Spirit,
I seek your lessons.
Show me how to sink
deep within myself
to find the answers I seek.’

‘Treat the Earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.’

The black panther is very mystical. She is the embodiment of lunar energy…..feminine in all her aspects…..child, virgin, seductress, mother, warrioress, seeress, and old wise woman.

‘Walk as tall as the trees
Live strong as the mountains
Be gentle as the spring winds
Keep the warmth of summer in your heart
And the Great Spirit will always be with you.’

This commissioned painting illustrates a Lakota creation story about Dog. I hand printed the story around the edge of 15″ x 12″ piece of 300lb watercolor paper.

‘So angry was the Creator over man’s mistreatment of animals that he drew a line wit his finger upon the ground. On one side were the beasts and on the other were the people. The line grew so deep and so wide that neither side could be near the other ever again. But at the last moment, Dog jumped over, to remain forever at man’s side.’

Wonderful story isn’t it?

‘When you notice a cat in profound meditation,
   The reason, I tell you, is always the same:
His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation
   Of the thought, of the thought, of the thought of his name.’
 
……..T.S. Elliot
