Four Prairie Flowers
Four Prairie Flowers depicts the free spirit of four women representing all directions and all nations surrounded by nature and wrapped in the warmth of a cozy blanket in the early morning sun.
The morning sun symbolizes an announcement of the beginning of the gift of life. The Blanket or the wrapping of the blanket also has significance in some native cultures and ceremonies as it has a maternal reference and is used to honor or dry to tears of mourners.
The four women are wrapped in blankets, carrying eagle tail fans which are decorated by a single center eagle feather. The eagle is a very powerful symbol for Indigenous tribes as it is a winged power that flies close to the Creator. The blue outline on the right of the women signifies the sacredness of the sun on the four Prairie Flowers.
