Kotare and I

Joanna Bagley

Painter Sculptor Ceramicist



'Kotare and I' came to me in a dream. I was visited by the kotare (or kingfisher) whom I released from a cage. Upon finding himself free, he flew at lightning speed into my chest and plucked a stone out of the necklace I was wearing. This stone was a red coral stone from Tibet. This dream spoke to me about how this power-animal has entered my life to change it in positive ways.

Painted in acrylics on canvas.
