Artist's Description

The Deer Woman is a shape-shifting woman in Native American mythology.

She sometimes appears as an old woman, or a young and beautiful woman, or a deer. In some depictions she has the body of a doe, and the upper body of a woman. In human guise, she can be recognized by her deer’s feet and her brown deer’s eyes.

She is a femme fatale / siren figure (much like the mermaid in folktales) and in most Native American stories, she lures men to their death. Once the man is lured away by Deer Woman, he is stomped to death when she transforms back into a deer. Deer Woman can also be seen a symbol of personal transformation or as a warning.

I took some liberties with this depiction, and gave Deer Woman antlers, as well as white hair, to signify she is a spirit creature.
