Description

Original Dolan Geiman NFT of the Night Messenger Pawn, an owl in armor with cabin, moon, and guidepost in his forested home. This NFT brings a unique western wildlife nouveau flavor to the digital collectible arena. The Night Messenger Pawn represents 1 of 32 collectible characters modeled after the pieces on a chess board.

MYTHOLOGY: The cacophony of coyote cackles echoes down in the canyon. We stoke the cabin fire and peer out into the night, catching a glimpse of feathered fingers as our protector, the Night Messenger, alights on ancient basalt.

POWER: When you own the Night Messenger Pawn, you harness the power of night protection over spirits and the power to block black resin.

COLLECTIVE POWER: When you own the entire set of CryptoMuun Pawns, you will harness the power to block all black resin and black feather, and will gain the ability to mine CryptoMuun silver.

The Process

Inspiration for my CryptoMuun NFT Collection comes from such myriad sources as ancient Egypt, iconic figures (human and otherwise) of the American West, and mythology. It’s a culmination of a lot of the other work that I create, but creating these characters in digital form gives me the opportunity to do something completely new to me. And what makes it new? Aside from the fact that these artworks will be digital, most of the NFTs are also animated! The animations will be fairly subtle but these are things I cannot do in the physical art world, and so the world of NFTs is affording me an exciting opportunity to venture into new creative territory.
