TITLE: Crow Skull For Rae
DIMENSIONS/RUNTIME: 12 1/2″ X 16 1/2″
DESCRIPTION/STATEMENT: Crows and ravens are considered ‘truth speakers’ and travelers between realities. That often includes the ability to travel between here and ‘the other side.’ This skull seemed to me to contain the truth that we all ‘pass over’ in our own time. Its importance was magnified by the fact that it was a gift from the life partner of my best friend, the artist Rae Atira Soncea, who died March 1, 2009. She spoke the truth too. This painting is a tribute to her.
