In the Stillness of a Hummingbirds Eye 3# (stag)
In the Stillness of a Hummingbirds Eye 3# (stag)
See the video of how this piece was made here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4o98-1326LE

In this piece I am merging together the symbolic meanings and mythologies behind the hummingbird and the stag. One of the widespread beliefs is that hummingbirds, in some way, are messengers between worlds. As such they help shamans keep nature and spirit in balance. Hopi and Zuni legends tell of hummingbirds intervening on behalf of humans, convincing the gods to bring rain. Because of this, people from these tribes often paint hummingbirds on water jars. The Hopi kachina for Hummingbird depicts him with green moccasins and a green mask. He has an aqua body, and he is yellow on top of the head. Like the hummingbird, that stag was believed to be able to jump between worlds, in a single bound, and was often seen as a guide. Here I have played up the connection between the hummingbird and the stag.
