Owl Medicine Bag
Along the animistic theme, this is a further painted Boldini-like pow wow dancer. This fellow holds “The owl” in his hands in the form of a medicine bag.
I picked an owl because it can see in the dark and make his way through the forest. The owl is another symbol of change, death, transition…called upon when a person must accept change, discern masks, find understanding during a confused time in life.

Wonder if the dancer will recognize himself in the image?
