For the Hopi people, corn symbolizes all aspects of life. Artwork depicts a blue corn plant rising from a rich mound of soil laden with plant seeds. A migration or journey spiral symbol runs through the corn plant representing the Hopi people and the plants journey together in this world. Surrounding the plant are dragonflies and butterflies depicted as flowers fluttering across the sky symbolizing the promise of rain. A rain cloud and migration design are etched in a distant mountain side.
