Gourd Art

The Fifth Migration - Bottom View

This is the bottom view of The Fifth Migration which shows the Sunwave©® design in a full circle. This design is also found on my jewelry items and around the body of most of my gourd art pieces. The design was originally inspired by the shape of the gourds, their roundness and their closeness to the earth.

For me, the design symbolizes the changing cycles of our earth, the changing seasons and the migrations that are stimulated by these changes. They occur in the air, on land and in the seas and have a renewing effect on every living thing.
