From the Artist - Andrea Vargas Mendoza:
Mountain Flower speaks of a place where dreams and passions are carried by the wind and ascend to the clouds. Mountain Flower pays homage to nature’s beauty from the top of a sacred mesa called Dzil Na’oodillii, which is located on the soil of the Dine (Navajo) nation. She is a spectacular mountain range that is surrounded by the company of the yellow Greenthread flowers, and visited by soft Grey Hairstreak butterflies. In the summer, the Greenthread flower is strong and grows bright yellow petals. In the winter she is sweetest when made into Navajo tea – soothing and warm.
