"Swirling Seeds" These Patricia Michaels designs are images that are all vegetation symbols from Southwestern pottery from the past 300 years. I decided to create imagery in a swirling pattern to bring sight to the wind and how we acknowledge that this is part of Mother Earth and her work to protect the ecosystem. As Natives, our centuries of being botanist and ecologist was misconceived or negated for other cultural self-gains by the entry of the New World into our very OLD WORLD of our sophisticated studies. It's a living religion of life, familiar patterns and continents with change. The change is knowing Nature has the last say and we aren't in charge but can be a part of preserving our lives, our children and lives yet to come. It's about balance and always learning change. We don't always see the change because we are human and we think we discover something new but it's always been there, we are the ones that have to learn it. It's the Ecosystem not the Ego System. SMALL & MEDIUM SIZES MAY TAKE LONGER TO ORDER! Each of the masks are created with the start of one of my original hand painted textiles. It is then photographed and transferred into a digital printed Patricia Michaels Textile. Once the fabric is printed it is cut and sewn into your mask. This makes it a designer mask of the "Water Lily Design" Mask Collection .

Taw-aw/Thank You for your time and interest in my work.
