This create took a long time to make. Usually I’m guided, I follow instructions that take me to these colors and impulses to these beads or those bones. With this one the trail went dead – I tried antlers, they didn’t work out, I tried this and I tried that.

Then I followed my Grandmothers advice when it’s not working just leave it alone – so I did. Then slowly it came to me – she wanted a mask – and then it all fell into place.

She is made in honor of our distant grandmothers, those who are spirit as their bones have long dried and turned to dust. Those women and their ancient ancestors before them – the ones who gave us the first notions of marking time – by creating notches on bones as they recorded their moontime. To the first baskets they wove to carry food back to others and share their harvest. These women gave us the first stirrings of language and astronomy…the list goes on but you’ll never find them acknowledged in any text book or within western mainstream shamanism.
