T-Shirt "Water Blessing"
By (the late) Rex A. Begaye
This is a men's size standard T size. 90%cotton, 10% polyester
Rex created this piece to honor the sacredness of water. Living by the ocean inspired many waterbird pieces. In this one Mother Earth holds the world, she is made of comfort patterns and waterbird feathers, symbolizing the Earth and our bodies, mostly from water.
Rex's pointalism 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.
