Thunderbird and Shaman (2020), Epson Archival Canvas, beads, wood, metal, thread, hide, approx. 12 x 13".

From the artist's Memory Landscape diptych series.  The Thunderbird is beaded above a pictograph of a Shaman figure from Lake Matagamasi located in the Sudbury District.  Ace took the photograph in the 1980s while on a canoe trip through the lake.

The work is printed on archival Epson Canvas with a simulated birch bark background added via Photoshop from a scan of real birchbark. The work references Anishinaabe birchbark scrolls that are etched iconography stitched together with spruce root.
