!gixa (sorcerer of the /xam) -36×48 Oils on Canvas
The /Xam in South Africa believed in the powers of their shamans to transcend their physical form, to change to a selected form of a buck, gazelle or a bird in trance. Other interpretations have theorized that these figures are death spirits, or an early race of peoples, but largely it is accepted that these are some form of shamanic rite. The shamans would wear masks and feathers or skin to assist them in their transformation and would dance . The pose is representative of a winged alite in a cave painting in KwaZulu Natal created over two thousand years ago. Transformative beliefs are a cornerstone of the history of winged figures in archaeology.

Angakkuq (transformative mask)
Angakkuq (transformative mask) – 36×48 Oils on Canvas
The Yup'ik and the Inuit believe their shamans, called Angakkuq, have the power to assume different forms. the power of flight is achieved by transforming into a bird. transformation is achieved by wearing elaborate robes and masks that resemble local birds. at the end of the flight, the bird would reach up and grasp it's beak, pulling it up and over the head transforming back into a human angakkoq. the masks range from wooden carved and painted masks to more mechanical masks that show transformation in further detail. I chose to show the point the mask is lifted, revealing half shaman and half bird. his mask is based on historic masks of the Yup'ik.
