Regular price Sale price $200.00 CAD

An owl feels spiritual by nature. It's flight silent, movement swift, and character wise. This piece is meant to reflect the balance we strive to attain in life. Reflecting a perception of depth through chromatic colour, also representing a spectrum of who we are as people integrated together from all around the globe. An inclusive atmosphere for each of us, gathering knowledge from each others culture and experiences. Turned into generational wisdom and see through the darkness. 

  • Designed by John Velten

    Born and raised in Kwikwetlem (Coquitlam), John's mixed roots stem from Europe, with German ancestry, and North-West Territories, with Dene ancestry. These contrasting lineages speak to his perspective, ability as an artist and affluence of different cultures.

  • The Owl Symbol in Indigenous Art

    This nocturnal hunting bird is a strong and silent flier with acute hearing and vision, and a haunting call. As in many other cultures, Northwest Coast people believe that the Owl has great powers of wisdom, foreknowledge and perception. These birds are known for their wisdom as they are quiet and calculating rather than vocal and impulsive.
