In Native American tradition all of nature can teach us something, or provide us with something we need, mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Through this ideology, the Native "medicine" of the Egret or Heron Animal Spirit gives us Patience and Balance.

Symbolism of the Original Sculpture:
"IN BALANCED CONTEMPLATION - HEGA'HO (HERON / EGRET)"
"Hega'ho" is the Native American Iroquois word for "Heron."
"In Balanced Contemplation - Hega'ho" represents the medicine of "Heron" or "Egret." Heron offers the gift of patience and balance, and also independence and self reliance. In the decoration of the Wheel, I have embedded a genuine Amethyst gemstone. Amethyst is known to protect against negativity and for enhancing intuition. It is also associated with the month of February, the month of water.
*Gemstones do NOT come with the print, but are mentioned as they are included on the Original Sand Sculpture to enhance the symbolism of the artwork.

I learned about the traditional Navajo sand art, commonly known as Sand Painting, from a Native co-worker when I was stationed in New Mexico in the 1990's. From there, I have developed my own signature sand sculpture style, which literally builds up upon the traditional technique. In respect for the origins of this art form, I have embarked upon my Native American Medicine Wheel series. In each sculpture I take an animal and attempt to help the viewer understand various Native American "medicines" through symbolism.
