Many Native American traditions believe Mother Moon was placed by the Great Spirit as the leader of feminine wisdom.
Of her many roles, she is associated with healing, keeper of wisdom and watching over the children of the earth. She helps to interpret their visions and dreams and has a strong association to the cycles of life.
The medicine woman of my sculpture is inspired by this story. She holds a medicine staff which connects her to the earth and is adorned with many symbols representing the universe, including the stars, sun, moon and earth.
