Dreamcatchers by puimun
There is a native american legend in which an Elder had a vision. He was instructed by Iktomi, the great trickster and teacher of wisdom, in the form of a spider, of the cycles of life. As Ikotomi spoke, he spun a web across the Elder's willow hoops, and from this created a dreamcatcher web. The elder passed on his vision to his people. Dreamcatchers are hung above one's bed or in the home to sift dreams and visions. The good of dreams are captured in the web of life and carried with you .... but any bad dreams escape through the center hole. At any rate, that was the inspiration for this picture. What came of it is something entirely of its own, with its own life and story.
