Shaman stone magnet painting
A design from the arctic Stone Age site of Bressov-Noss near Lake Onega in Russia, it was originally engraved into rock, and then possibly painted. The crescent and disc the figure holds or propels before him could be the sun and moon, or unimagined parts of a myth. The figure wears a wolf's head and tail; as a disguise or to gain power?
About the magnet...
This piece of French Vanilla slate has a lively palette of cream, gold, cinnamon and dark grey freckles. I really liked how the shape of the stone worked with the shaman and his mysterious accessories. The magnet measures 4.25" x 5" (10.7 x 12.5 cm). There are 4 ceramic magnets on the back, and it is signed on the back to keep up the appearance of being a fragment of ancient art.
