"A major theme of shamanic art is transformation. My culture believes that a transformation from human to animal, to the spiritual, is always a possibility. Occasionally, my art captures a terrifying vision. The vision represents the struggle of the soul to create the good that will conquer evil. All people, regardless of culture, have faced this struggle. Through my art, I bring the spiritual and cultural worlds of the Nisga'a to others across the world." - Ron Telek This piece was part of the major 2005-2006 exhibition Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 2 at the Museum of Art & Design in New York.
