Symbolism of the Original Sculpture:
"POWER OF INSIGHT - AMONSOQUATH (BEAR)"
"Amonsoquath" is the Native American Cherokee and Powhatan word for "Bear."
"Power of Insight - Amonsoquath" represents the medicine of "Bear."
Bear gives us the power of introspect and spiritual insight. While dreaming or hibernating, Bear seeks answers, as do all seekers of the Dreamtime and Visions. Bear helps us find the pathway to the Dream Lodge and other levels of imagination or consciousness so that our goals may become reality.
Embedded in the decoration of the wheel is a genuine Jasper gemstone. Jasper embodies tranquility and wholeness, especially in times of stress.
*Gemstones do NOT come with the greeting card, but are mentioned as they are included on the Original Sand Sculpture to enhance the symbolism of the artwork.

As a Fine Art and Consignment artist for over 30 years, I work in a variety of mediums, but primarily work in Oils and Semi-Relief Sand Sculpture. I paint a wide range of subjects, but specialize in landscapes, oftentimes presenting my love of the mountains and the West through my scenes. Beyond the traditional landscape, many of my paintings tie history or symbolism together to create a story or emotional connection with the viewer.
I learned about the traditional Navajo sand art, commonly known as Sand Painting, from a Native co-worker when I was stationed in New Mexico in the 1990's. From there, I have developed my own signature sand sculpture style, which literally builds up upon the traditional technique. In respect for the origins of this art form, I have embarked upon my Native American Medicine Wheel series. In each sculpture I take an animal and attempt to help the viewer understand various Native American "medicines" through symbolism.
