Struggling for Meaning: Wolf Cat Horse Totem - Find your personal totem in art painting, painting by Sandra Merwin

About This Painting:
A totem painting is a symbolic art form used to get in touch with the archetypal qualities represented by the animal. From the ancient artists who painted on the cave walls to Carl Jung's animals dream symbols, animals have held power as archetypes. Each animal is the archetype for certain qualities that represent meaning in our lives. We are drawn to animals as symbols of the qualities that bring meaning into our lives.

I've created this artistic totem with the wolf symbolizing the cunning ability to survive against formidable foes, the cougar symboling independence and the ability to be alone, and the horse a symbol of passion and excitement.

To determine your animal totem ask yourself these three questions:

What animals am I attracted to?
Most people like cute baby animals, that's not what I'm referring to. Most people like their dogs or cats. But this question is asking you to dig deeper and think of the animal that has meaning for you.

What animal would I be if I could be an animal?
For example would you like to run like a panther.

What animals are representative of qualities that I'd like to possess.
For example would you like to soar like an eagle?

Since the beginning of time people have used animals as symbols of meaning in their lives. This painting with the Wolf, Cougar and Horse all blending into one with lost and found edges allows the viewers eyes and heart to consider the meaning.
