Bighorn Sings to the Moon
Mini Canvas Print
Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
With symbols of a successful journey filled with family and life giving rains, Bighorn Sheep sings a blessing song to the moon. Known for their agility to climb and jump among steep rocky terrain, Bighorn Sheep live among the canyons and lava fields in northern Arizona. Within the Grand Canyon 4,000 years ago, prehistoric people created twig figures of Bighorn Sheep. Today, Pueblo people continue this tradition of honoring this animal and its spirit.
