This is based of the Caddo tale "The Voice, the Flood, and the Turtle". A woman gives birth to four monsters that grow really fast until they are huge and stand back to back until they fuse together and then there is a flood.

A very quick drawing of more bowl stuff.


The Mimbres believed that the sky was a bowl covering the earth, which goes with that burial bowl business. And of course there are legends about reaching the spirit world through a hole in the sky.

i dont know what day it is


anyway trying to catch up on monthies thought i'd try lasso tool and be cool like marina, but i dont really like it.

i can't find my stylus, but the touchpad can suffice
Coatlique, the mother god from Aztec lore

did you know::  the 15 foot idol of Coatlique was dug up by the Spanish, but was then reburied not because it was terrible to behold, but because it could not be explained how a "savage" race could carve it.

This is based off a Mimbres burial tradition of putting a bowl on the deceased's head after cracking a hole in the center as a way between worlds.
based off a Navaho sand painting

Hi Hi

this is another member of monthies! hooray! i am actually the founder because i was the only one with a computer at the time of it's spawning.

it's very washed out, bleh...

i want to do the one with the castle-thing on his head and the Squash one next
