Gentle Blessing (giclee print)
By (the late) Rex A. Begaye
Rex created this piece with the butterfly blessing as inspiration. When a child is born a butterfly or hummingbird is captured and gently brought to the new child and touched with it, then it is released. It is to bring gentle strength, quickness of mind and body so the child will not be slow. surrounding Mother Earth are the comfort pattern reminding us of all the blessings she gives us.
Rex's pointillism pieces were usually done to the beat of the powwow drum while he was in his booth listening and watching the dancing. The drum symbolizes the heartbeat of the earth, each dot is a beat of the drum.
