Description
Since living in the Black Hills (2009) I read a Lakota story of a deer so beautiful that she transforms into a woman and the hunter follows her. I think some have actually "been" with her. Then she changes back to a deer and runs away. The hunter becomes obsessed with finding her again to the point of madness more or less. I represent this legendary figure as a contemporary figure sitting in a medicine wheel. The arrows represent her being caught this time! This picture is semi-autobiographical.
