"Lifeline" (reproduce on high quality canvas as a gallery wrap)
The boy was born with a birth mark on his hand, on that day, a young white moose, with the same birth mark, pass by the camp. Many time as he grew up the boy heard from the elder about his link with the white animal. On the day he would see it, he was told, his life line would be revealed.
The meeting with his future became the boy's obsession until one morning, they came face to face. The elder's words sounded in his mind,"When you meet the white moose, you will see what you will become."
He saw a strong, gentle, unique animal; he would be solid, fair, and one of a kind. He saw points missing on the antlers; he would live long and bury many. He saw a female with two calves; he would have a wife and two children. It was a bright day; he would have a brilliant life. He was surrounded by a white forest; he would be dominated by white men. All of this cames to pass... When he was old, he returned to the site. With his eyes closed, he visualized the scene of years ago, searching his memory for a sign foretelling his own death. Finally, he opens his eyes: he has seen the omen. Seconds later, a stray bullet strikes him in the heart, bringing to an end his "Life Line". What has he seen?
You will notice that the white moose had a scar in the hearth area. The place were they met was already in destiny because one of the trees also have the same birth mark.
