Eagle Medicine AUTHENTIC INDIGENOUS ART! Cultural Background: CreeBetty Albert-Licenz was adopted and raised by French Canadian parents in Northern Ontario. She spent time on Vancouver Island where both of her interests in art and spirituality surfaced. During the next twenty years, she worked with pen and ink, and improved her artistic techniques.Circumstances eventually brought her back to her Native American father, discovering her birthright as a Cree. Betty then began an art business with her father called “Wabimeguil Art Studio,” which distributes art throughout North America. Like many Cree people, dreams play an important part of her life and her work. She discovered that her dream people were faceless and this is evident in some of her work. Her art allows the viewer to experience tradition, action, and a deep spirituality. Her use of vibrant acrylic colors begs us to view creation in a new way. Through her painting, “Wabimeguil (White Feather),” she expresses not only her own growth in spirituality, but also encourages people to experience “The Peace,” that she represents in her art Part of the Indigenous Collection.1000 Pieces.Finished size: Approx. 73 cm x 48 cm / 29 in x 19 inArt by: Betty Albert

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.

Sword In Stone

Sword In Stone

Sword In Stone Part of the True Genius Collection.  Early civilizations shaped our world by solving puzzles.  Faced with a problem, they were able to visualize and execute a creative solution with few resources. These brilliant innovations are the foundations of our modern society and the mark of true genius. The goal of the Sword in Stone is to do what the knight coud not: pull the sword from the block and replace it again down to the hilt. The legend has it that in feudal Rome, a brutal and cruel knight was visited by an angel, who told him ne needed to change his ways. Comparing that plea to the difficulty of spliiting stone with a sword, the knight attempted to demonstrate his metaphor. Instead of breaking, the sword was plunged into the stone where it remained for more than 900 years… Difficulty: 3/5 StarsAges: 14+

Pull the sword out of the stone.

The simplicity of jigsaw puzzles is deceptive. While the concept is very straightforward – find the pieces and fix them together – there is a surprising level of mental activity required to carry out the steps needed to complete a puzzle. Psychological studies have identified a number of thought processes that are required to undertake what is in fact a complex process of identifying shapes and images and relating them to an overall pattern. More importantly, solving jigsaw puzzles is a great work out for the brain and can actually have therapeutic benefits.
