#728 "Anasazi Muse"

"Anasazi Muse"
21"H 12"W 8"D
Edition 25

     The macaw was sacred to the Anasazi Indians.  According to legend, they 
believed the macaw took the sun south to its winter home and returned 
it in the spring. Trading with Mexican tribes supplied macaws to the Anasazi; 
their brilliant feathers provided were sacred objects.  Today, the pueblo people, 
descendants of the Anasazi use the birds in their rituals.
