This print from Indigenous artist Mark Nadjiwan comes matted and measures 12" x 12". The First People of this land knew that the winged-ones and the four-legged ones -- such as the loon (maang) and the otter (negik) -- were gifted with the power to teach. Today, the New People of this land can also learn the lessons imparted in the song of Loon and the playfulness of Otter. Loon-song demonstrates the importance of communication. Loon, who mates for life, also exemplifies fidelity. Otter can bring healing and balance to the seriousness of our modern lives by reminding us of the importance of our childlike, playful side. In the picture, one can see an inner circle -- Mother Earth -- wherein Loon gets ready to greet the day with her characteristic tremolo. Framing the Earth on the left is Otter, who will while away much of his day in frolicsome antics. The cardinal pointer and small yellow circle represent the East where each new day begins with the rising sun beckoning Loon and Otter ‘to sing and play.’
