Project Description

This dignified homage to a Native American honors a father, on his special day. Native American culture differs from tribe to tribe, but most of the tribes have a respect and reverence for nature in common. This profile of a proud father, feathers proudly entwined in his hair has been executed on a background of a single large round tier, covered in darkest black. It was common for Native Americans to wear feathers in their hair, as a reminder of their connection to birds, and all of the natural world. As one Native American chief explained to his son: “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” The love and regard for a father is evident in this design. “HapteeHocueneraHinigiren”, Dad!
