Two Feathers

Last night I dreamed this image.  When I got up, I did a quick sketch in charcoal.

I’m beginning to learn Muscogee, the language of my ancestors, by translating the titles of my artwork.  I am getting the the point where I can pronounce the written words correctly on sight.  ‘V’ is pronounced /uh/.  ‘Tafv (feather) is /tá-fa/.  Hokkolen (two) is /hokkôl-in/.
