I'itoi Ki - Maze of Life Canvas Print
The words I'itoi Ki translate to I'itois house, referring to the creator called Elder Brother who travels to his home in a circular path. This path also represents a person's journey through life, each turn symbolizing a life-changing event. At the end of the path, a niche allows one to reflect on one's life before journeying onward to the center. Behind the pathway is a Hohokam motif representing the clouds and water that is vital to desert people.
This mini canvas print I'itoi Ki: Maze of Life 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.
