This painting is a conceptual piece made with mixed acrylic and oil. It is of a humpback whale centered with animals surrounding them. These animals include a snail, butterfly, hummingbird and normal birds. There is also a man on a moon painted above houses of white with tints of orange, and shapes that are considered warriors in the Taino culture. Every animal in this original piece has a symbol behind it through the Taino culture as well. The snail was used as a hallucinogen in rituals, the hummingbird which is sacred to the Taino’s because it was a pollinator and therefore a disseminator of new life. It symbolized the rebirth of the Taino Indigenous Nation in the Caribbean. This conceptual art piece also has the Hibiscus flower which is the flower of the Caribbean.
