In Living Color
A flock of jewel-toned hummingbirds beautifully capture a Pueblo Indian legend passed down through the generations. This joyous painting is part of Sarah Janece Garcia's suite of hummingbird paintings.
The tale tells of how the brilliant hummingbird gained its plumage through an act of bravery. According to legend, the tiny bird flew to the rescue when Pueblo land was threatened by fire. It flew to the north, south, east, and west to gather rain clouds to extinguish the flames. During its heroic flight, the hummingbird shot through a rainbow, and it is believed that this is where it got its majestic colors. Sure to add a flight of fancy to any wall it adorns, Sacred Sun celebrates this aviary hero through bold brushwork and splashes of color. Made in Dallas, Texas. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.
