The stuff of myth. I like how the bird appears to be returning to her source.

Sonia Mason
Beautiful image. Very original work. Fabulous highlights and atmosphere. I simply love the eagle flying into the frame. I only wish the top two characters on the Totem Pole were not loosing their detail. Regardless, very unique and beautiful.

Sonali, Gail, Sonali, thank you so much. I am glad to hear you like it. Gail, if you happen to be travelling to Vancouver for the Olympics, or for any other reason, you should take in this Museum. It it visually stunning and so inspirational. This is just one small building, part of a larger outdoor display. They have updated it since I visited last year. Best wishes.

This is a fantastic image.... The idea and the creativity behind this is amazing.... The treatment you have done on this image makes it dreamy but it also gives it that mystical feel and that is perfect for this image... Wonderful color tones and the light is great to... A stunning work on this one.... All my best, Jill

Myth Time

Great subject material and presentation.  The "fading out" effect of your shot is reminiscent of Haida Gwaii itself ("The Islnds of Mist") and the Haida's concept of "Myth Time" (similar to Australian Aborigines' concept of "Dream time") as a region of thought and creative expression outside the boundaries and human logic and "historical time".  Your picture suggests the ethereal power of myth.  Well Done; the MOA is always a great source of inspiration.
