Like a child towards its Mother, this mask conveys the bond and interdependency of life towards the moon’s influence.
From the dawn of time, the moon tl’etuze had always danced with the water and like children we gaze in awe.
The moonlight c’eldzin in its subtle guidance, controls the tidal stages of life.
Her orbit is like a dancing circle; rising and falling upon the oceans and rivers.
This mask also portrays bewilderment as it gazes upon her reflection; reminding her of her loneliness.
The reflection was forever present.
“Tranquility and serenity envelopes”
