The Native American Dream Catcher is traditionally made to encourage peaceful sleep. Native Americans believe that the night air is full of dreams. The good dreams catch in the web, traditionally woven from nettle fibers, and slide down the feathers toward the person sleeping below. The bad dreams get caught in the web and are destroyed by the first rays of the sun.
Tiger Lily, a member of the lily family, is a symbol of “wealth and pride“. Although the flowers are native to northern and eastern Asia and Japan, they adapt well to the moderate US climates of Southern California and Florida. The bright orange flowers with purple/brown spots.
I was inspired by the traditional dream catcher/mandalas when I created this art piece. Although I did not intend it to serve as a dream catcher, I did include ribbons which can be adorned with feathers and other items of your own choosing.
This piece is a One-of-a-kind, hand made piece of artwork. It was created over many hours of meditation and prayer. It will not be duplicated.
