BLOSSOM DANCE

Each year many Native American tribes celebrate the coming of spring. In this painting, I have the One Horn and Two Horn Priests dancing to celebrate this annual event. The flowers are blooming and the butterflies return, marking the beginning of a new life cycle. As the ceremony occurs, there are many songs praying for peace and harmony (as symbolized by the dancers holding hands) and for the clouds to bring their rain droplets to help the plants grow. The band in the center of the painting symbolizes the many types of clouds recognized by the Hopi, and the dots and dashes represent the rain. I also include a band with fine lines to signify the layers of the earth where the aquifers rest, and a single white line with breaks to indicate time and it's continuing cycle.
