In a dance for visions, the dancing figure appears by dimensional spaces and slashing diagonal pattern forms within a large recessive space. The different geometrical forms divulge the emotive aspects of the painting. The ghost dance, performed as a ceremonial practice, was performed to reunite both living and dead spirits which would bring about peace, prosperity and unity to native peoples. The dominant blue is peaceful and serves as a sign of prayer to complement the other colors as purity of thought. The painting includes the patterns of Sioux tradition in not only the depiction of the dance itself, but also within the line work of the piece.
