Becoming Worthy II *SOLD*

300.00

by Marika Swan

This is an limited edition, archival quality giclee print of a wood block print layered with acrylic painting.  

“When our people were whaling they prepared their whole lives spiritually to be worthy of a gift as generous as a whale. Everyone in the community had to work in unity to ensure the hunt was successful and done safely. Each whale was such a bountiful offering of food for the community and each part of the whale was utilized and celebrated. As a Tla-o-qui-aht  woman there are many large gifts I am hoping to bring home to my community and I understand that I am on a journey to spiritually lay the groundwork so that I am ready when they arrive. Pook-mis, the drowned whaler, lies at the bottom of the sea floor and offers a warning that things can go horribly wrong if you are not properly prepared. 

Becoming Worthy is a part of a series of woodblock prints exploring my people's natural and supernatural relationship with whales. “
