Only when by JWiesner Only when by JWiesner
Native American sort of heya-heya music, with vocals, flutes, and drums. I don't know how they manage to put my heartbeat and pulse into this music.

A portrait of my Andean Condor Shaman. I changed his head a little. And added a wise Native American proverb to fill the huge empty space around him actually.

Man...this condor looks so solemn and melancholy...like he can look into the future and doesn't like what it is. Nicely done!

*sigh* You overestimate my ancestors I think. They're not as wise and nature loving as they make out.
On the upside, THIS LOOKS GREAT!!!!!

I know nobody is perfect, after all they were humans too. But I still believe most of the Natives could handle nature better with their humble lifestyle than those people that took their land away and gave them alcohol lol. :c

True... But consider that maybe it just would've taken slightly longer for them to mess up the earth. A couple hundred years, maximum.

The originator of that phrase hadn't heard of tasteless algal supplements grown in controlled water supplies and fertilised with human faeces.

Still... not exactly a future I aspire to.

Beautiful artwork, or at least as beautiful a picture of an Andean condor can get :XD:
Also, the proverb fits into this picture pretty well, with the condors being all endangered and what not :ohnoes:

I know this quote D: I can't remember who it's from, though. Some very well-known native American leader... What was his name again?! This frustrates me so..

Regardless, it's a wonderful piece of wisdom, and we must keep it in mind. For not all must be destroyed :/ That would be such a shame.
