Maquette of “Rhythmic Movement in Grasslands”

This maquette was originally submitted in 2020 as part of Barsy’s application to the Manitoba Museum’s competition to select an Indigenous artist to create a mural to introduce the new Prairie Gallery. Barsy’s finished work, “Rhythmic Movement in Grasslands,” is a reminder that all life is interconnected and that much is beyond our perception. It features abstracted representations of grassland fauna in an alternate dimension of the prairies now within Manitoba.
