Dancing with Dragonflies Canvas Print


Symbolizing rain dances with dragonflies, this piece beautifully depicts a Hopi maiden with feather wands and headdress as rain clouds gather above the mesas. In the fall, girls take part in a ceremony named "Poliitkive" - the butterfly dance. The girls represent the spirit of butterflies traveling from flower to flower, while both dragonflies and butterflies symbolize the promise of moisture, fertility, and life.

This mini canvas print Dancing with Dragonflies is part of a series from Hopi and Cherokee artist Gerald Dawavendewa. Each piece of art depicts an animal or spirit that is a significant part of the Indigenous world, a description of the artwork, information on the Indigenous culture that inspired the artist, and an artist biography.
