Cynthia Holmes - Deer Hide Sage Filled Heart
Handcrafted by Cynthia Holmes, an Ojibway enrollee at St. Croix Reservation in Hertel, WI.
"Energy is the medicine that supplies us. Love and peace are what sustain us. Whether coral deep from the the Mediterranean or turquoise from the Earth's belly, I negotiate relatives into colorful arrangements. The tenuous but supple deer hide--has my back at every turn. My task is to bury the prayer within."
