The Ocean’s Talking Stick

IMG_3669

Talking sticks are part of Native American culture, particularly the tribes from the Plains (Cheyenne, Blackfoot). They are used in discussions, permitting individuals to share points of view. Each item on the stick has meaning.
This still life is evocative of the shape and form of a Native American talking stick. The reeds and leaves speak of the land, the feather of the sky, and the bubbles of the ocean. This “talking stick”, found just at the water’s edge, speaks of the place where all these elements meet, the tide line.

    • Thanks, Ilex! We spend a fair amount of time visiting family in the southwest, so I think sometimes when I see things that remind me of our time there, I am really just missing clan….
      So very glad that you enjoyed the still life today!
      Stay warm!
      Maggie
