From the First World to the Fourth World to the Star House and beyond… Explore the beauty and the mystery of the universe, guided by a brilliant Native America artist.
CODEX TAAWA is a series of illustrations inspired by ancient imagery that explores the cosmos of the Hopi people. Each piece highlights a part of the Hopi tradition, stories, or knowledge. For the Hopi, the night sky is an astronomical calendar with all of its elements used to set ceremonies, rituals, seasons, events, and measures of time. The Hopi people have observed and measured the movement in the sky to create a complex guide to assist them with existing in this world, which they know as the Fourth World. Hardcover.
