Calling The Four Directions

The Maya tell us that we came from the stars and that humans are made of corn. It is prophesized that when the four colors of the human race, just like the four colors of corn: red, yellow, black, and white, blend together like Indian corn on the cob, we will have reached the desired state of oneness consciousness.

Each direction on this work is represented by a color on each of the four sides. The sun and moon are the sprit of the corn and also depicted in the work. The central figure features a Two Spirit healer in ceremony reverently calling to the directions. Special thanks, gracias, tlazocamati to Jaysa for the use of your image. 

This work is currently hanging in the Santa Fe Capitol Rotunda Gallery as part of the Cultural Red Exhibit from April to August 2015. And in 2016 in Ruidoso Downs NM at the Hubbard Museum of the American West. For more on this work visit
