White Yanasi (Bison) Love Decoded: "To use the power of the bison, I had to perform that part of my vision for the people to see." ~ Black Elk This piece took over 13 years to complete and is dedicated to my oldest niece. The canvas itself started out as a collaborative piece with fellow art @jaydzignz on a Dr. Sebi inspired design. She finished the background and the piece just sat in my studio for over a year. One day while moving the piece I turned it upside down and saw the image jumping out at me. It reminded me of my niece and a piece I had wanted to do years ago. I went back to my old drafts and re vaped them to flow with the colors. Started layering texture to form the Bison. Pulling from my indigenous roots I’m retelling the story of the White Buffalo.
