Medicine Wheel/4 Directions - Porcupine Quill by Marian Red Cloud (Lakota)

<< Previous in New Additions Next in New Additions >>
Price: $49.00
Item Number: MZM0049
This medicine wheel is made of porcupine quill.   It represents balance between the physical and spiritual world with the circle, cross and four colors holding several meanings and representations. It is made by Lakota artist Marian Red Cloud.

Each color has a direction associated with it.  East (Yellow) is the direction from which the sun comes.  South (White) or southern sky is when the sun is at its highest, so this direction stands for warmth and growing. West (Black) is where the sun sets, and signifies the end of life but also the source of water. North (Red) brings the cold, harsh winds of the winter season and represents the trials people must endure and the cleansing they must undergo. The circle represents the outer boundary of Earth and the crossing lines can represent man's path.

The symbol holds a teaching which states "walk the good red road and live the balance within the sacred medicine wheel of the universe."
