Artist Statement : This print represents a dream that a friend had. In the dream [some]one walked into a garden that had a lot of Amethyst crystals. Crystals represent wholeness (and were used by shaman in olden times). On the right side of the design is an eagle that represents my brother who died prematurely.. There are five moons in this design. Moons symbolize the eye of the universe. The title "The Gatherer" also refers to my journey to gather together the different parts of my life.
