Wisdom is a gift few recognize
This painting is part of a painted drum series and the image was inspired by a dream. Crocodile symbolism concerns the ability to trust oneself. Many associate the crocodile with aggression and danger, I see a creature whose strongest quality is patience, balanced by the wisdom of knowing when to take action.
