Golden Purifier, oil on panel, 7″ x 9″, 2010

Original Sold.

Cathartes Aura, or golden purifier is the Latin name for the turkey vulture.  This totem is a very powerful one for me.  They are a living embodiment of the Phoenix, as I see it, as they consume what is dead and create life from it.  These creatures lack a voice box, leaving them only singing in crackles and hisses, the sounds of flame.  I started this painting during a major interna cleanse, and finished it later that month in November of 2010.
