Healing and Comforting (giclee print)
"Healing and Comforting"
By (the late) Rex A. Begaye
Rex began bringing color to his black and white stiple pieces, Healing and Comforting is one of only a handful were that were completed.
Healing and Comforting reminds us of all the gifts that are given to us by the Earth. One of the Dine'h (navajo) blessings is represented in this piece.
The butterfly and hummingbird are brought to a new child, gently touched and then released. The essence of the butterfly or hummingbird is gifted to the child. The Eagle feather in Mother Earth's hair are the blessings for her protection and healing.
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.
