Owl Medicine Assemblage
It didn't have to be purple but it seemed to match the mood of the show for which it was being prepared. There are other versions of this picture and the assemblage is still not finished and needs to be assembled each time it is shown. There was a mixture of owl medicine, Native legend and contemporary conservationist attention to the demise of the spotted owl. Its a ceramic vase in the shape of the owl with a "toothed" vaginal opening into a landscape that includes a coniferous tree. There are other additions and offerings of intent that belong to this assemblage. The photo is all there is as a complete image now.
