Totem Spirit Eagle by Ellyevans679 Totem Spirit Eagle by Ellyevans679
Illuminating our vision, Eagle Totem Spirit brings us the dawning of awareness and a sharpness to our contemplative skills.

Gazing with unblinking focus, Eagle guides us to find clarity, to cut to the essence and see things as they truly are. Eagle inspires us to action, to hunt down what we need for our fulfilled life with keen efficiency.

The spirit of the Eagle symbolizes higher thinking, mental liberation, glorious insight and spectacular wisdom.

When the regal Eagle soars into our psychic vision, it may be a sign that we are preparing for a symbolic cleansing, finding the determination to revitalize or gaining the freedom to create new opportunities.

I enjoyed your commentary on the whole "cultural appropriation" question.

This is certainly a tricky issue for us, particularly where Caucasians and American Indians are involved. There's a particular history here of European colonists taking what they liked from the native American cultures while simultaneously destroying the rest, including the American Indians themselves. They would often even recast native practices to say what the Europeans felt they SHOULD say - sometimes things like "Christianity is the one true religion" or "Europeans are the true heirs ordained to take this land into the future."

And yet, in my mind, there's nothing inherently wrong with people adopting elements of a culture they're not born into. I would even venture to say that cultural exchange is a good thing. It's just the whole "exchange" part that's tricky - as you well know, looting and exchange are not the same thing.

Anyway, I love this piece. Maybe it promotes some positive cultural exchange in the year to come?

Thank you Clare for your input. We have a similar history with the colonisation of Australia and the theft of our Aborigine's lands, spirituality and children in order to 'assimilate' them with our supposed correct way of living. Yet the indigenous cultures were those that always left enough behind for anyone that followed...animals or people...it is the industrialised nations that tread heavy on the earth...we could learn many lessons from them. And yes cultural exchange would be positive, however for the time being I am going to be far more sensitive and aware of my use of iconography in my artwork. :D :wave:

I love the colours, its very earthy and serene.

And I agree wholeheartedly with the over sensitive nature of political correctness. As far as I'm concerned, art is created to be art, not created to annoy people. Its a wonderful piece, and I salute your ability and vision.
