Kluskap

Portrait of Kluskap (with Amethyst), oil on canvas, 38" x 60", Steven Rhude

"Kluskap, the first creature, was created out of three bolts of lightening, according to Mi’kmaw legends. Gerald Gloade, a public information officer with the Mi’kmawey Cultural Centre at Debert, says the first bolt gave him form, the second life, but he was still connected to the land and could only observe and learn from nature. The third bolt set him free to walk about and teach."
