"White Eagle Woman" Framed Canvas Print by Betty Albert 8" X 10"
The Eagle (Migizi in Ojibwe) holds a very special place for Native peoples and symbolizes vision, strength and courage. There are many special meanings and special uses for the Eagle and it is represented in many forms in Native peoples' art. The eagle's spiritual message is embodied beautifully in "White Eagle Woman." We love this dreamy, feather-filled painting. It has such an overall softness about it juxtaposed with those sharp black talons, and the beaded fringe is mesmerizing—a dramatic addition to any First Nations art collection. Looks fabulous in a grouping of 6 or more same size works. Available in ready-to-hang museum-wrapped canvas unframed or framed in an elegant floater frame in your choice of Antique Gold, Brushed Silver, Classic Black, Cherry Brown or Expresso Brown. Museum-wrapped canvas measures 8" x 10" and in frame measures 8-1/4" x 10 1/4".
Cultural Background: Cree
Betty Albert-Licenz was adopted and raised by French Canadian parents in Northern Ontario. She spent time on Vancouver Island where both of her interests in art and spirituality surfaced. During the next twenty years, she worked with pen and ink, and improved her artistic techniques.
Circumstances eventually brought her back to her Native American father, discovering her birthright as a Cree. Betty then began an art business with her father called “Wabimeguil Art Studio,” which distributes art throughout North America. Like many Cree people, dreams play an important part of her life and her work. She discovered that her dream people were faceless and this is evident in some of her work. Her art allows the viewer to experience tradition, action, and a deep spirituality. Her use of vibrant acrylic colors begs us to view creation in a new way. Through her painting, “Wabimeguil (White Feather),” she expresses not only her own growth in spirituality, but also encourages people to experience “The Peace,” that she represents in her art.
Betty lives with her husband and together they operate an art gallery, printing facility, where they distribute and market the work of a variety of artists.
