The Spirits From The Backwoods is a sculpture collection of multi-medium totems and wearable pieces hand-crafted by Flips.

Drawing on the “Kukeri” tradition, from his native homeland of Bulgaria.

The works are intended to act as spirit totems who ward away evil and bring good vibes. While often incorporating various items of significance, reoccurring themes such as animal bone and Backwood Blunt packs can be found.

The bone or organic matter is often used to honor nature and give life to the totems. Blunt packaging is used to honor the community and spiritual element found in the world culture of cannabis. Each totem and wearable piece tell a different story, all acting as pieces for an ongoing story told by Flips.
