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