Silver Grizzly Mural,Penticton, BC, Grizzly design by John Rombough, 22’x8’

Central to the mural is the Silver Grizzly Design by John Rombough. Within the surroundings I’ve added the four food chiefs from the Syilx creation story, as well as the coyote. For me the story of the four food chiefs embodies the qualities of respect, appreciation and gratitude for the land and all it provides. I am reminded to be responsible not only to the surrounding environment, but also the environment within. With responsibility and awareness I can be mindful of what I consume both mentally and physically. Balance within, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually provides an opportunity to bring about outward change, not only for ourselves but the collective wellbeing.
