DescriptionThe symbol originated from Zia Pueblo, and has sacred meaning to the pueblo. Four is a sacred number, which symbolizes the Circle of Life: four winds, four seasons, four directions, and four sacred obligations. The circle binds the four elements of four together.
Symbols are a powerful element of human life and communication. While some images and patterns are purely decorative, others hold significance that is deeply intertwined with a people's sense of the world and their identity in it.
From petroglyphs to pottery and beyond, Pueblo tradition is rich in symbols whose meanings can be as layered and diverse as the region's history. We honor these symbols and the people who created them by honoring what they signify, and conscientiously including them in respectful designs.
