Native Americans believe that all natural things within the universe, including birds, have souls or spirits. Bird feathers represent freedom, power, wisdom, honor, and trust. The hawk feather, in particular, symbolizes guardianship, strength, and far-sightedness. This watercolor painting is part of a series of visual investigations into the beautiful and repetitive patterns found in bird feathers. The delicate and intricate details were really fun to abstract into related geometric patterns and shapes!
