Narrative: The Transfiguration of Jesus on Mt. Tabor depicts encounter and dialog with Moses and Elijah. All three figures are imaged as Lakota. Moses, wrapped in buffalo hide, wears a Chief’s feathered headdress and carries an eagle wing as a sign of authority. Elijah the prophet carries the peace pipe. Jesus, transfigured as the Annointed One, wears a white Hudson blanket and is encircled by the emanation of celestial light.
Traditional iconography gives witness to the human face of the Sacred. This icon, imaged in the features of America’s indigenous peoples, reveals anew that sacred power. It celebrates the soul of the Native American as the original spiritual presence on this continent, and as a prophetic sign, it celebrates the reconciliation of the spiritual vision of Native and Christian peoples of this land. (This narrative is printed on the back of Note Cards. A copy is included with each plaque & print.)
