Grandmother Spider - The Weaver
Grandmother Spider – Spider Grandmother, Spider Woman,, Tse-che-nako Sussistinako is known in the ancient folklore of Native Americans, as the creator of the world and the universe.
For the many hundreds of Native Americans Tribes, such as Hopi, Pueblo, Navajo, and the Choctaw to name but a few, there are many myths and stories about the old spider woman who created the sky, brought fire to the people and created the 4 races of humans . She molded out of clay the red, yellow white and black races of people, connecting each one with a thread from her web at the top of their heads (crown chakra) , as a reminder that all are connected to the central source via the web of life.
One of the most popular and well known stories is that of Grandmother Spider spinning her web of creation whilst singing her song, After she had embellished the strands of her web with dew drops, she threw this web into the sky, the dew drops becoming the stars and planets.
The stories of Grandmother spider are symbolic of the Feminine aspect of the Creator. In the oral tradition of Native Americans, stories to explain the mystery and magic of the universe were passed down from one generation to another, The American Natives understood and connected deeply with nature and the earth, and Grandmother Spider’s web of creation helped them comprehend that everything and everyone is connected to this web of life.
Within all of these tribes there is a common honoring of the deep sacredness of the Feminine and the feminine aspect of the earth and creation. To this day, whether we are Native American or not, we refer to the earth as Mother Earth, and to nature as Mother Nature.
Out of the dark, out of the void, Grandmother Spider through her thought , dreams and desires, weaved the web of life. The web is the matrix of the cosmos, the complex pattern of threads connecting everything to everyone. The Spiral dance of the weaver, is the spiral dance of creation. Grandmother Spider not only asks us to remember how fragile the threads are, but that we are these threads indeed and that whether we understand it or not, whether we believe it or not, we are all connected intricately and intimately to each other. © Jo Jayson 2016

The wonder and power this art evoked is other worldly! No, actually. It is deeply of this Earth! My whole community of Goddess women were deeply blessed from this transmission. We are making an altar for Spider Woman in our Goddess Garden and this will be the center piece. Deepest bows of gratitude for your art and for your words. <3 Maya and the Goddess Garden Atlanta community

The picture is lovely. It arrived on time and was well packaged. I got the smaller print and would encourage you to consider a larger print - I believe it might be a better appearance and be less dark. But the right frame will bring it out beautifully.
