Spirit Brothers 2 The Angry Cougar

Alan Brown's avatar Alan Brown

Spirit Brothers 2 like the first Spirit Brothers is based on the Native American belief that they have a spirit brother in animal form. In this work a Cougar is the Spirit Brother. As an artist I always try to challenge myself when doing a piece. Sometimes that challenge can be carving an animal I’ve never done before or showing emotion through facial expression. In this work I have tried to capture the emotion of of aggravation and disgust in the face of the Native American and flat out anger in the Cougar. These emotions are common when ones culture, land and way of life is threatened and disrespected.
