Description:   The wood panel with connecting dowels was a real “find” and an ideal surface on which to explore the power of Shamanic imagery. Feeling this power and wanting to have it present while teaching, I kept it within visible range even while photographing student art with professional studio lights. MISTAKE! The oil and colors were absorbed into the wood, darkening the image on one side irrevocably. This photograph is all that remains of the original. These images were on either side of the same panel.
