In Native American culture, the Hummingbird signifies peace, love, joy and happiness. Hummingbirds are depicted in their symbol as a mated pair and represent devotion, eternity and life. The Hummingbird is able to fly backwards, teaching us that we can look back on our past but that we must not dwell on it — we need to move forward. This creature is the one that opens the heart. When the hurt that caused us to close our hearts gets a chance to heal, our hearts are free to open again. Many Native Americans see the Hummingbird as a symbol of good luck.

Randy Wisla himself describes Hummingbirds as “joyful messengers who represent peace, affection and good fortune. The Hummingbird is a living rainbow that captures the sunlight and turns it into a jewel on its wings, signifying love, beauty and healing.”

About the Artist
Randy Wisla, proud member of the Carrier Nation of North Central British Columbia, finds personal strength and inspiration from his culture and his elders. As the son of established Northwest Coast Native carver Charles Harper, he developed his creative skills early in life by sketching with pencils and pastels. The process of deconstructing the world and reconstructing it through a piece of art was taught to Randy through his apprenticeship with his father. For Randy, there are no creative limits to his work as an artist.

Dans les cultures amérindiennes, le Colibri est synonyme de paix, d’amour, de joie et de bonheur. Un couple de Colibris représente la dévotion, l’éternité et la vie. Le Colibri est capable de voler en arrière, nous enseignant ainsi que nous pouvons jeter un regard sur notre passé, mais que nous ne devons pas nous y attarder – car nous devons aller de l’avant. Cette créature est celle qui ouvre le coeur. Quand la blessure qui a fermé notre cœur a eu la chance de guérir, notre cœur est libre de s’ouvrir de nouveau. Pour de nombreux Amérindiens, le Colibri est une créature qui porte bonheur.

Randy Wisla décrit les Colibris comme « des messagers joyeux qui symbolisent la paix, l’affection et la chance. Le Colibri est un arc-en-ciel vivant qui capte la lumière du soleil et la transforme en bijou sur ses ailes, un signe d’amour, de beauté et de guérison. »

À propos de l’artiste
Randy Wisla est fier de son appartenance à la nation Carrier du Centre-Nord de la Colombie-Britannique. Il trouve sa force intérieure et son inspiration dans sa culture et ses aînés. Fils de Charles Harper, un sculpteur autochtone de la côte Nord-Ouest, il a développé ses talents créatifs très jeune en faisant des dessins au crayon et des pastels. C’est son père qui lui a enseigné à déconstruire le monde et à le reconstruire à travers une œuvre d’art. Pour Randy, il n’y a aucune limite créative à son travail d’artiste.
