Giclèe Canvas Print

Also known as the “Man in the Maze” it is one of the more well known designs that is found in Tohono O’odham culture.

Canvas print is gallery wrapped which has the artwork around all edges and mounted on a wood frame that measures approximately six inches square. We include description of the artwork, information on the Native culture that the art originates and biography of artist. The print has hanger on back and is placed in a clear envelope.

I’itoi Ki: or I’itoi’s House refers to the Creator called Elder Brother who travels a circular path to his home. This path also represents a persons own journey through life, each turn symbolizing a life changing event. At the end of the maze a alcove allows one to reflect on one’s life before journeying onward to the center. Surrounding the maze are people in a ceremonial dance celebrating the coming of the rains.

Behind the maze is a Hohokam image with a water motif representing the clouds and rain that is vital to a desert people.
