This sculpture references the 4 Sacred Directions. This sculpture plus, the next two, are from my “Four Sacred Directions” series of work. The Four Sacred Directions was a philosophy/world-view of my Native American/ Mexican ancestors. It represents the structure of the earth, the universe and its’ creation. Each cardinal point had a spirit and a color associated with their direction. The equilateral cross is also representative of the balance between the spiritual and the physical, both having equal importance.
