Rainbow People

This image is a collaboration with Danish artist Michael Richardt, and takes loose inspiration from the Native American Rainbow Gathering, which occurred for the first time when the form of a white buffalo calf appeared in the melting snow on the mountainside. This was seen as the fulfillment of a Hopi prophecy, which states:

“The great-great grandchildren of the white conqueror would grow their hair long and rebel against society, travel east and west, gather in the mountains under the symbol of the White Buffalo. They would dance, sing and chant in many tongues. Their symbol would be the dove. They would be Brothers and Sisters to the Hopi — people of peace. They would come and go, yet be a sign that the Spirit is returning.” 

This image represent the different tribes, brothers, sisters, nations and cultures coming together to travel to the Rainbow Gathering, to await the new times ahead.
