Hi everyone! I am very motivated to participate in this challenge, it will be an excellent test for my skills and improvement. I hope everyone is well and enjoy this opportunity to show our art.
My idea and concept is closely linked to the folklore of my country, specifically to the northern area, very rich in ancient traditions, cosmology, shamans and healers, beautiful goldsmiths, costumes and typical dances.
Nuna, the young shaman
Nuna was raised by her grandmother, a powerful and respected machi (female shaman) because her parents died fighting dark invading forces.
Since she was little, she was willing to learn the secrets of her ancestors and use that knowledge to help her people as a healer and spiritual protector. The ease and speed with which she learned about medicinal plants and substances pleasantly surprised her grandmother.
As an adult, Nuna was ready to take the next step in her training, mastering the power of spirits and dreams to protect her people from the impending arrival of a powerful evil force, which she had seen approaching in one of her premonitory dreams.
Nuna has the ability to summon her warrior ancestors.
