NEW! "Three Sisters" Matted Print by Gerald A.A. Dawavendewa
- "Known as the "Three Sisters", these crops are grown together to benefit each other. Beans planted at the base of the corn stalk provide support to their vines as they rise upward to the sun. Squash plants grow close to the ground protecting soil with broad spiny leaves. Together these plants thrive and provide a balanced food source to the people. Three spirits symbolizing Beans, Corn, and Squash stand behind the plants. Bean Maiden wraps herself in a blanket bearing water symbols. A bundle of bean sprouts sits at her feet. Corn Maiden carries plant seed elements upon her blanket and and holds ears of corn colored in the four cardinal directions. Squash Maiden's blanket contains flower imagery, the promise of new life. The three maidens stand on the earth rich in seeds, frogs, and other life, waiting for the return of the life-giving rains. Among the maidens gather butterflies formed like flowers, symbolizing the promise of coming rains."
