Artist's Description

This bark art story centers on a simple man lost in the caverns of a newly discovered prehistoric art filled cave. On the right side we see dark shadowy figures. They are his guides and are seen conversing about how to help this confused soul resume his journey after he leaves this uncharted territory. How did he get in this cave? Only his spirit guides can tell him what purpose this journey has to give meaning to his life. There are many symbolic glyphs on the walls, but the spirits caution him not to look too deeply into them. The walls open up at unexpected times that can separate him from his guides. He is perplexed and unprepared for an experience that is so different from his simple life as the village stone mason. He feels that he is caught in a dream that may turn into a nightmare without trusting the shadow guides to lead him to safety. At this point in the story, he is contemplating his fate and has decided to move forward, but he does not know that his life will never be the same again after his spiritual journey. If you have any thoughts about this story, feel free to add what you perceive in this abstract photograph.The details of the imagery are best viewed in the larger format.
