Mini Canvas Print
Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
Sowi the Jack Rabbit with cloud symbols stands upon the crescent Moon as stars rise above the Earth behind. Rain clouds gather above the Earth, which holds signs of corn, rain, and a migration spiral representing the journeys of the Earth and Moon. For the Hopi people, Muuyaw the Moon is watched over by Sowi. The darker areas upon the Moon’s surface symbolize the Rabbit, while the lighter regions symbolize moisture. Muuyaw is a vessel filled with water, a symbol of prayers to the Earth.
