This is one of my VERY favourite Masks, please have a close look at it, it's spectacular!
Portrait Mask with Hummingbirds and Dragonflies by Janice Morin from the Cree/Salish Nation (and Partner of Randy Stiglitz/Salish) - both very successful and highly sought after First Nation artists.
The painting is extraordinary, the face shows the Dragonfly's on it's forehead with Hummingbirds (Birds of Love) on each cheek. Abalone (Mother of Pearl) inlays throughout, see the eyes, so intense! Janice adorned the face with cedar rope and cedar bark which is dyed in black which brings out the colors even more. You can clearly see the female touch in this piece of art - done by a master artist with so many years of experience in carving.
This is a large mask, so rich, so powerful - Janice really put her heart into this piece and spent a lot of time thinking and working out the design, carving and painting. The mask in very dear to her heart. She dedicated this mask to the MMIWG and parts of the proceeds will be donated to the Golden Eagle Rising Society. (https://www.goldeneaglerising.org/champions/lorelei-williams) Lorelei is a relative of Janice.
