The Fall of Weskeyjak, 2018Archival Inkjet PrintEdition 2/1020 x 30 inches#artforsaleWisakedjak(Weskeyjak) is the benevolent culture hero of the Cree tribe (sometimes referred to as a "transformer" by folklorists.) His name is spelled so many different ways partially because Cree was originally an unwritten language (so English speakers just spelled it however it sounded to them at the time), and partially because the Cree language is spoken across a huge geographical range in both Canada and the US, so it has many different dialects. Wisakedjak is a trickster character whose adventures are often humorous. Unlike Plains Indian tricksters, however, Wisakedjak is usually portrayed as a staunch friend of humankind, and never as a dangerous or destructive being. In this story, Weskeyjak teaches a lesson of patience when given goose wings. •••••#artforsale #contemporaryart #artcollector #art #modernart #artist #artwork #artistsoninstagram #artcollectors #artgallery #fineart #buyart #instaart #artoftheday #gallery #artlovers #artsale #sale #galleries #forsale #shinnecock #myth
