The inspiration for the design of Salish Spirit is a spindle whorl, a disc used by the Salish people in the traditional making of wool yarn. The spiritual animal figures in "Salish Spirit" represent land (frog) and sky (Thunderbird). There is also a Salishan figure, a Medicine Man of the peoples. The frogs represent the voice of the people and symbolize Innocence, stability, and communication. Thunderbirds live high in the mountains and are the most powerful of all spirits. The Human figure symbolizes the Peoples of the land, and the connections we have to Mother Earth. Susan created this drum for her Spindle Whorl show at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the first half of 2017. It is also in the catalogue from the exhibition. It’s also a limited edition Serigraph design by Susan.
