A new year and a new art theme that I’m experimenting with – Totem Animals.
“A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe. The totemic symbol may serve as a reminder of the kin group’s ancestry or mythic past.”
The first Totem Animal is the Saluki.
As the owner of a lovely smooth Saluki I never tire of observing this beautifully elegant and ancient breed of sighthounds from the Middle East.
