Native American people believe strongly in the medicine that we get from the animal spirits. The spirit of an animal teaches us lessons about life that we need to learn.
A hummingbird is thought of as a messenger and represents the ability to stop time. They also represent joy and beauty. This powerful image created by Hopi artist Dalton James depicts stylized hummingbirds as they surround a colorful flower in a 10" long x 8" wide matted print.
Dalton James is a self-taught artist from Hopi Pueblo, and is a member of the Tobacco Clan from the village of Hotevilla in northeastern Arizona.
