Raven's Mask Shrine wall hanging, with masked woman in raven's cloak, by Julie Higgins and Nansee New, Casa Luz.

This Iconographic Shrine points to the masks that we wear, the animal kingdom, its power and our relationship to it. As we look at our own “masks” we can recognize our beliefs and values. We see how we limit ourselves and we see the opportunity to become more authentic. By taking on a different persona we reinvent ourselves and see life differently. The Raven’s keen sight helps us to see clearly. Raven is playful, intelligent, adaptable and bold.

The piece is a collaboration with Julie Higgins. This copy of her shamanic image is mounted on acid free mat board in a clay frame that is impressed with a hand made stamp. The frame made from cut slabs that were painted with terra sigillata, was fired twice before the final decoration. The first firing was accomplished in an electric kiln, the second in a sawdust kiln. The surface color variations, or patinas, are due to the play of smoke and fire during the final firing. Finally, the piece was decorated with paint and bead work before the image was mounted in the central opening.

The Shrine Series contains collaborations with several women artists. Each has created an image of a cultural or spiritual iconographic figure. These historical and cultural figures provide a window into other ways of experiencing life.

Although some are similar, all pieces are individually made and each one is unique in design, bead work, and decorative motif.

The piece measures: 9”L x 4 1/4”W x 1 1/8 “D
The beads are of malachite and glass and clay.

There is a hole in the back for hanging the piece on a small nail head.
