Ancient Symbol of Sacred Protection
Grandmother_Moon_Mask_Red_Cedar_Carving_by_Native_American_Artist_Richard_Cochrane full on front viewA full moon inspires awe and wonder in all those who gaze at it. Long before recorded history, cultures around the world were charting the moon’s path across the night sky. Its perpetual waxing and waning, vanishing and reappearing, marked the passage of time - not clock time, but the cycles of life; the ebb and flow of the sea; the birth, maturation and migration of animals; the sprouting of new plants and the scattering of seeds.

Unlike the sun, Grandmother Moon does not blaze her power upon the earth. It is subtle, more receptive and reflective. The moon brightens the darkness and is therefore a powerful guide or protector. As the force that rules the tides, it is strongly linked to water. The moon is a sacred symbol that appears in countless Native American. These ancient cultures often carved masks to express the intimate relationship between the invisible forces and spirits above, as well as the people, animals, plants, rocks and earth below.
