Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
Giclee Canvas Print
We've reproduced some of Dawavendewa's artwork in a large giclèe canvas format that measures 10 and half inch square (26.67 cm).
Angaktsina (Long hair katsina) spirit looks upward to Taalawsohu, the first star of the morning. Katsinam are benevolent spirits that bring their ceremonies to the Hopi. These ceremonies are woven throughout the year until their return to the spirit world. As a bridge between this world and the spirit, they are a reminder of how life should be lead. Angaktsina wears his hair long to represent falling rain, a prayer for moisture. Petroglyphs around him hold symbols of journeys, moisture, and friendship.
Canvas print is gallery wrapped which has the artwork continue around all edges. Print is mounted on a wood frame and includes a hanger. We also include a card that has the title of the artwork, a description of the print, biography of the artist, and information on the Native culture that the artwork originates.
Our Canvas prints are created from original artwork from Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi and Cherokee). We start with using heavy weight canvas specifically designed for photo grade printers. Our prints use ink that is smudge, fade, and water resistant. As in any artwork, please keep out of direct sunlight.
