Matted artwork print
Gerald Dawavendewa (Hopi & Cherokee)
Wrapped in a flower-laden vine, A cedar tree offers life to the animals and people. Surrounding the tree are water symbols, giving moisture to the land. For the Cherokee people, the cedar tree is held sacred. The cedar is an evergreen tree, never losing its foliage, reward from an ancient challenge from the spirits to the animals and plants on who could stay awake the longest. Like an evergreen tree, cedar also has a wonderful aroma with a rich-colored wood that resists deterioration and insects. This wood is used as incense in ceremonies and blessings. To the Cherokee, The cedar is known as a “Medicine tree” for all the gifts that it provides the people.
