This is an original block print on top of a hand-painted monotype titled "Fallen from Stars". This image is a modern telling of the Cherokee creation myth, when the animals who came down from the Sky Vault, or Galun’lati, came to live on Earth. Here you can see the coyote falling from his star home to his new home on Earth. Later some of these animals were chosen to go back to their home above in Galun’lati. These sky-bound creatures are believed to be particularly auspicious.
Materials: Monotype, block print.
