The Keepsake

Wall Hanging, 14''H x 10.5''W x 2.5''D

In late summer there is a social dance to celebrate the harvest to come, and to recognize the butterfly for its beauty and its contribution in pollinating plant life.

It is a beautiful dance where maidens wear an elaborate headdress that is colorful and made just for them by their male partner. The plaza is filled with young couples in their colorful splendor and there are songs of celebration that contain meaningful lyrics filled with happiness and contentment.

This headdress will be uniquely hers to keep as a ''KEEPSAKE'' once the dance is over. This is a very special gift and will later be hung on the wall at home as a reminder of the Butterfly dance being a petition for rain, good health and long life for all living things.
