Description

"Universal symbol of the exploration of the mysteries of life. Because the snake represents the unveiling of the sacred mysteries many repressive belief systems have linked snake to evil ideas. (The legend of St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland is one example of these repressive systems using the snake as symbol of evil that had to be eradicated.) The snake is a totem which appears as protection from religious persecution. Throughout history the snake has been the subject of legends linking it to creation, fertility, transformation and sexuality. The snake is fire medicine, the medicine of transmutation and it is the symbol of transformation and healing. (The image of the snake is found on the "Caduceus", The snake must shed its old skin in order to survive, symbolizing death and rebirth. (The image of a snake swallowing its own tail is a symbol of eternity) The shedding of the skin is also associated with astral travel and out of body experiences, thus in shedding your skin, the snake symbolically guides you along the path of transformation. (The snake is cosmic consciousness, the ability to experience all things without resistance, and the knowledge that all things are equal in creation. It signals a great transition in life through new opportunities and changes. Native American Totem Animal for "Scorpio""

Meet Tori Swanson

Hi, I'm Tori! I received my certificate in Fine Arts at Langara College, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I initially focused on the female form in line drawings. I remember attending my first drawing class and being in AWE of the bravery of the nude and curvaceous women posing so confidently in front of a class of students. Get to know me!

All artworks are original and signed by myself.

Shipping

The artwork will be carefully packed and shipped once purchased. Most commonly, these are the following shipping options available:

  • Rolled up in a shipping tube (Cheapest)

  • Shipped in a cardboard box + Bubble Wrap (potential risk of damage in transport, but typically safe and cheaper than a crate).

  • Shipped in a Wooden Crate (Safest)

All canvases are not stretched for ease of shipping. If you would like your canvas stretched and mounted you may select that in the shipping option.

Shipping fluctuates depending on the size and weight of the piece. At checkout, you۪'re asked to pick a shipping option, which is an estimate. If there is a difference in price, I will reach out personally to discuss any additional payments of partial refund if need be.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me through the contact page or email me directly at tori.s.swanson@gmail.com.

Looking forward to packing your orders!

This Artist Wants You to Take Off Your Clothes and Love Your Body

Tori Swanson draws people naked for a living. As an artist, her primary focus is nude portraits. Being sketched completely naked can be a vulnerable experience, but Tori’s goal is to make the experience a liberating one. “I want people to look at themselves differently. I want people to not be afraid to explore who they are, and I want people to be open to trying new things and being less judgemental with themselves.”
