"Through Anishinaabe teachings and stories, I have been taught that the deer carries a big heart and the lesson of kindness" - Nyle Miigizi Johnston
This Deer image is one of 23 original works inspired by Anishinaabe teachings and recreated by artist Nyle Miigizi Johnston of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation.
The "Connecting With Our First Family" exhibit features a collection of 23 images of animals, birds, fish, insects and other creatures. Nyle Miigizi Johnston's exhibition will be at the Art Gallery of Ontario until September 2018.
