Deer Messenger 4: New Growth (Awakening Series)
by Alyssa Hinton
20" x 20"
Archival Pigment Print on Rag Paper
The deer is a universally sacred being to Indian people. It is considered a spirit ally of the shaman. It signifies newness, new knowledge and the parallel stage of a newborn baby. In this piece the young deer, with the eyes of innocence, takes form out of the the old. Surrounding its head is the fresh new growth of spring foliage, also signifying newness. The red and white swirls represent complementary duality of all forms. Original medium: mixed media composite (digital hybrid combining hand rendered art & photographic imagery).
