Power and Protection Shield

Mixed media, on 16 by 20 stretched canvas. This piece is full of symbols personal to me, including my two main power animals, the porpoise and the condor. The figure in the center was originally to be the Virgin of Guadalupe, representing protection, but as you can see it morphed into a spiritual type figure, I think representing myself. We can have guides, but power lies within.

The feathers and bells are for summoning the spirits when needed. More than any other piece, I wrestled with most of the elements of this work, changing it over and over as I tried to exercise my own ideas and will over it. It finally came together after I surrendered to something greater than my conscious mind.
