1 From: www.Art Blog/Eric Whollem.htm Essu means 'old woman' in the Concow Maidu Indian language. This work is a fanciful rendering of an elderly lady with her baskets. I have lived in close proximity to many Maidu people over the years. The language and culture has penetrated my art.

26 WASP DOCTOR

27 I lived off and on at Chi Chi Te, or Black Earth Villlage for many years, among my friends who happened to be Concow Maidu Indians. The black background in this painting is made from rough chunks of charcoal, ground in a mortar. The green and blue earth paints where gathered from Forbestown and Lumpkin Road respectively. When I was staying at Black Earth Village in Feather Falls, the old Indian grandfather used to sit under the walnut tree, where he would set out a tub of water with a stick across the top. This was a wasp trap. Insects would fall into the water and drown, thus eliminating what otherwise would have been a bothersome pest in the area of seats in the shade. Meat bees were especially hard to take with their painful bites. I did not choose to place the wasp nest on this painting, the wasps chose this painting to establish their nest. They apparently wanted their story to be told.
