The mythical bird is a messenger which appears during Sioux ceremonies. The bird traveled from east to west symbolizing the journey from sunrise to sunset and from life to death. Utilizing primary colors, the "circle" represents the "hoop of the earth" - the "tree of life." Traditionally, this would have been constructed of sticks or twigs and reference made to the four cardinal points. The image of the bird utilizes aesthetic lines to provide balance to the painting.
