$3,400.00

100% of proceeds from sale will be donated to Butterflies in Spirit, a dance group made up of Indigenous women, girls, and 2S who dance hip hop, contemporary, and decolonial Indigenous dance for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls (MMIWG) and Two-Spirit people. Learn more about the organization here.

MMIWG is an acronym for “Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls”, referring to an epidemic of violence against Indigenous women in Canada and the United States, notably those in the FNIM (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) and Native American communities, and a grassroots movement to raise awareness of MMIW through: organizing marches; building databases of the missing; holding local communities, city councils, and tribal council meetings; and conducting domestic violence trainings and other informational sessions for police.

In the painting, the figure stands on Turtle Island and their outfit contains symbols representing the Inuit, Métis, and Medicine Wheel as a symbol of health and healing. The hand prints are from two young girls who have faced challenges from physical handicaps and being visible minorities.

This painting is available, but not for immediate purchase. Please reserve to put the piece on hold, and we will contact you to proceed with purchase / inquiry.

Why can't I check out online for this piece?

This is a specialty shipping item, meaning we need to verify packaging and shipping costs before payment. Please Reserve the piece instead, and we will promptly provide a full invoice.

As always, if you are local to the artist, shipping is complimentary.

I love this piece, but can't quite afford it!

We offer some options which might hep with affordability:

  1. Rentals: artworks can be rented for 5% of the total cost, charged monthly, for a minimum of 2 months. Rental fees incurred can be applied against an eventual purchase, as long as the rental fees were for the same piece. This is a great, low-risk option to test the artwork out it in your space without paying the full cost up-front.
  2. Installments: similar to the rental program, we are open to arranging installment-based payments with zero interest fees. E.g., 25% of the artwork value charged monthly, over 4 months. This is arranged on a case-by-case basis.

To pursue either of the options above, please reserve the artwork.

How is authenticity guaranteed?

All artworks we sell are original works or limited edition prints. For the latter, the edition number and total number of editions will be specified in the description.

All pieces are signed by the artist.

An authenticity certificate with the artwork and purchase details will be provided once artworks are delivered and you have confirmed you are satisfied.

What does "Framed" mean?

The artist has already put the artwork in a frame, which is included in the dimensions and cost shown. An image of the artwork including the frame should be provided.

All frames are optional.
