I am leaving for Spain this weekend. I’ll be making stops in Madrid, Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada and finally Barcelona to meet up with a girlfriend. In preparation for my trip, I have chosen to post something I have grown accustom to in the last twenty years here in Seattle and the surrounding areas. Native art has not, until recently, been interesting to me. However, my tastes have changed dramatically and now I think it powerful and beautiful all at once.
“A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most.”
– George Bernard Shaw
Reblogged this on chelseacullen and commented:
This art is really interesting! All of the facial features are defined and somewhat exaggerated. The person holding the small child looks like it would be really detailed if you saw it up close!
