Years ago, a friend of mine was diagnosed with AIDS and then meningitis. I wondered after his passing if there were ANGELS, or even if our ancestors looked over us. I became obsessed with the question “Is there life after death”?
To process, I designed and painted this image. An entity upon the moon with a peace dancers headdress, an eagle front let. The long thin lines atop the headdress represent walrus whiskers that were traditionally used on frontlets. Behind the eagle front let was space for eagle down. So when a dancer danced before his guests eagle down would float upon the floor before him.wishing good will to his guests.I gave this entity wings of an angel, I would love the stories and myths to be true. The entity sits upon the moon,I have such passion for, and gazes over to our saddened souls.Ever watching over us. I wrote a piece of prose to accompany this serigraph but I for the life of me cannot find it.
