Tales & Legends

Tales & Legends

There is no greater debate than the creation story, so here is my image for Illustration Friday for this week, entitled the “Substance-Maker”, a creation story. I actually created this image January 16, 2008, but I thought it fit for this week. I am fascinated by bears lately!

This is a tale of a female entity out of the cosmos, who was an artist in her own right and decided to create a world, of substance, of matter, she formed the animals and the world, but humankind has yet to be invented…

Okay,for the writers out there this is a trigger for a story…!

  1. Nice one Indigene! I love the expression on the woman's face.

  9. I love that you have a story behind this illustration. I especially liked being greeted by the bear on your banner as well as your tales and legends bear.:)
