DMT :: DIVINE MOMENT OF TRANSFIGURATION
Vector Illustration By :: Brian C. Zickafoose © 2011

A new illustration by artist Brian Zickafoose titled – DMT-Divine Moment of Transfiguration, delves into mysteries concerning supernatural agents, inter-dimensional astronauts and altered perceptions. Zickafoose bounds through the aeons to an era when artist and shaman were one and the same, where the collective conscious and the well-being of the tribe were dependent on the distant etheogenic explorations of the medicine man and where special fruits of the forest were selected for their messianic properties and consumed for the prosper of all, in an effort to understand the paradox of the grand illusion we know as reality.[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

 

DMT depicts the artist, Zickafoose, in shamanic garb and telling tales of altered perception to his infant daughter, Xia Yasmine Zickafoose, as she, the light-bearer, holds a candle high, while the artist etches epic figures from visions into the rock for future epochs to behold.
