The inspiration for this piece originated in a dream I had.The details came after I chose a gourd and began drawing what I had seen.
The Lizard is an amazing creature and, as with everything in nature, there is much we can learn from him.The key ability of the Lizard is subtle perception.They have keen eyesight, very acute hearing, and can sense vibrations through the ground.Lizard can help you awaken or heighten your own sensory perceptions and learn to form a deeper connection with your intuition and spiritual awareness.
Some Lizards have the ability of the tail to come off and to grow another one.Lizard can help teach us about detachment.Sometimes itâs necessary to detach ourselves from someone, or something, in order to survive and/or to grow.
This is a cannonball gourd that measures 4 Â½â tall (not including the driftwood stand) and 15 Â½â around.The inside has been cleaned out and sanded and was left itâs natural color.Around the rim I did filigree carving which I also left natural.I utilized the technique of pyrography (woodburning) to engrave three Lizards around the outside.Because the shell of the gourd was such a beautiful tone of brown, I chose to leave the Lizards natural but used acrylic paints to decorate them and to paint the outside black.I inlaid three round turquoise cabochons around the top.Inside and out has been sprayed with three coats of satin polyurethane to protect the finish.I chose to use a piece of driftwood as a stand.For decorative purposes only.
This piece was created the old way as instructed by tribal Elders.
