Ancient Vision

“Our African forefathers gave us the wisdom of the oneness of the human being

in which the animal and the deity co-exist.” Credo Mutwa.

African indigenous knowledge points to the existence of the White Lion since the earliest times. African Shamans consider the White Lion to be the most sacred and spiritual of all animals and the apex of the animal kingdom. For them to become extinct would be for mankind to lose their ancient knowledge and to threaten the sensitive balance and order that exists amongst all living things.

I used the image of the Nilotic Meridan to illustrate the connection between Giza in Egypt and Timbavati home of the White Lion.

In ancient folklore it is believed that birds are souls of human beings who reached a higher state of perfection, and more specifically the Yellow-billed Hornbill is the symbol of faith.

The prominent Blue Eye represents ancient vision and indigenous knowledge.

Purchasing - Mystery of the White Lion Collection

The collection consists of 23 artworks created in Veronica Coetzer’s unique photomontage style that she developed to assist herself and other trauma and abuse victims in the healing process.

Each work is filled with meaningful imagery, symbols and motives that become evident upon close inspection. The works tell the story of the White Lion from the earliest days from the time of the Sabre Tooth and the First Man, through the time of the Pharaoh's till today.

Veronica has attached a short motivation with each work but the nature of the work allows for a different and personal interpretation that is unique to the viewer.

Each work is signed and numbered by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Superior quality art paper, canvas and ink are used in the creation of these artworks. Each work is presented in a tube and the full set of 23 images in a special collector’s edition portfolio box.
