Details

The mask is signed on the inside by Norman Tait and Lucinda Turner his partner. This mask was made at a point in time where Norman was experiencing a transition in the way in which he brought his visions to life.The story that he shared in relationship to this mask was the story of how among his people, the Shaman performed healings by "journeying to the other side and requesting the spirit of the bear to guide his healing. So the Shaman speaks with the voice of the bear, and hears with the ears of the bear. There is more to the story. But that is the summary.
