This is for my Mound Builder Ancestors of the SouthEast. These designs have been used in carved shell and Pottery for thousands of years. Euchee/Yuchi people specifically are called children of the sun and believed the sun to be the giver of life. In our creation story we are literally born from a drop of blood from the sun that had fallen to earth. Some say the eye in the middle of the hand represents the eye of the sun watching over us. I myself have felt it to mean something greater than the Sun, the Universe, one in the same. This design is meant to give the wearer a reminder of strength and protection, Set your intentions because your Ancestors/Universe hear you. Mvto!
