Saquasohuh

Things have been quite hectic for me of late. I'm in the process of packing everything up to move to Arizona. I could not, however, resist the temptation to draw out a quick design for this weeks Illustration Friday topic "mask". The topic reminded me of the ancient Hopi prophecy of Saquasohuh. According to the prophecy the fifth world will emerge and there will be a time of purification upon the arrival of the "Blue Star Kachina" (otherwise known as Saquasohuh). He shall remove his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children, and this will bring about the emergence of the fifth world.
If you like to read up on the subject, I found an article here that goes into more detail about the fascinating Hopi prophecies.
