The design brings to mind the sun on the horizon, peacock feathers spreading, a flower unfolding, a Native American Headdress.

“The holes are a design element that renders the canoes useless, and allows wind to pass through. Boats symbolize passage from one world into the next. It is a portal and symbol of passage, unfolding, flowering.”
