As a power animal, a totem and spirit animal, woodpecker stands for strength, opportunity, wisdom, resilience, kindness, and determination. ... If you look at the pileated woodpecker symbolism alone, you would learn the qualities of loyalty, steadiness, determination, and presence.
New Rhythm is created with Dry Point engraving process. To make a print, the scratched plate is inked all over, then wiped off the surface leaving only ink in the scratched lines. The plate is then put through a press together with a sheet of paper, making a print. This process can be repeated many times to make several prints. Dry point offers the ability to explore line quality and detail in drawing.
