The Pictorial Aspect: Native America

3.5 Native America: Animal Shields – Amplitude
and versatility of communication

Every painted shield of this series tries to draw the viewer’s attention to the uniqueness of the animal depicted. Each creature has a different form, texture and color of body. Each responds to the general characteristics of its species, while being singularly special and unrepeatable in its individual form and sound. Animals have their own habitat and life style influencing their particular communication means. Animals or flora, pertaining to the same family, branch into numerous sub-species, all according to the ever changing geographical context, dependent on space and time dynamics. The more, one inquires into the secret life of beings, the more humble one feels when approaching the non-terminable spectrum of transient living phenomena.
The observer, conscious of the miracle of both transient and present phenomena, continuously learns to increase his ability to communicate with the species and sub species, as well as the flora, for everything is full of the subtlety of Life manifestations. The more open minded the seer is, the more will he uncover the inner secrets of reality. The more experienced he gets in gathering nature’s revelations, the more he increases the awareness of an invisible spiral of the endless living phenomena. We all are brothers and sisters of the human, the animal, flora, stones, metals, stars and galaxies. Our souls and spirits all form part of Infinity though bodily, we are her for a limited time.
The acknowledgement of the here and now, on the one hand, and the ineffable spectrum of changing phenomena on the other, may be the source of Humility and Awe as one begins to grasp the Great Mystery.
