Artist's Description

The idea of sacred space has been one of the foundations of Native American philosophy throughout time. We see all life-forms as having their own life cycles, from the Stone (rock) people, to a Cloud person, or to a Standing (tree) person ~ they all have a space that deserves respect. Every creature being has its own territory and respects the territory of other animals. Two-leggeds (humans) also have a personal space that, if respected, becomes Sacred Space.

This Mandala was created to represent ‘Sacred Space’ on the Blue Road to Spirit… teepees (home/shelter) in the cardinal directions: White/North; Yellow/East; Red/South; and Black/West (also symbolic of the 4 races). Day skies & Night skies, cloud people, thunder/lightening beings, standing people, mountains, sun and moon. Arrows of respectful friendship and feathers for the gift of respect.

Great Mystery,
Teach me to honor
the Laws of Sacred Space,
The customs and traditions
of every creed and race.

Great Mystery,
teach me to develop
the talents that I own
And to behave with reverence
in another’s home.

Great Mystery,
Teach the child in me
to accept with grace
the part of Sacred Mystery
found in every space. Jamie Sams
