The "Sacred Sentinels" welcome all to the Medicine Wheel in Surrey-Newton, made of cuttings from black walnut, yellow willow, red osier dogwood and some branches are painted white to include the FOUR CARDINAL COLOURS and the FOUR TRIBES of HUMAN-KIND symbolized in the Medicine Wheel. With the help of many hands, Teresa Klein, First Nations Elder Amy Eustergerling, Steve Chitty, Don Li -leger,and maybe Steve Webster had a hand in there too or at least moral support! All enabled Tracie Stewart and myself to create our first collaborative Natural Public Art construction, using only wood branch cuttings, sisal, pine posts and fresh cedar branches. You can see hints of the medicine wheel and sharing garden in the background that are still under construction.
