"MishiMakiinaak/The Great Turtle" Premium Canvas Print
Anishinaabe People believe that North America is on the back of a Great Turtle (Turtle Island). The Great Turtle is also a representation of our First Mother the Earth. This painting is a gentle reminder that we are all children of this First Mother (MuhziKummikKwe) and have a responsibility to her as a child has with their mother. We must protect and love her and humble ourselves to Creation. The Spirit lines make a complete circle showing the interconnectivity between us and Creation. The roots underneath the small turtle represent humility and being grounded with Creation. Also on the back of the Great Turtle you will find a complete lunar calendar.
This 24x36" canvas print is hand-stretched on a poly-cotton blend canvas with a matte finish coating.
