Being inspired by the idea of utilizing the number 4, the elements - earth, fire, air, water - are represented in this quadrilateral figure. Each of the 4 corners has a small tail, though one is hidden behind the kite. The quilt-like background is the Eye of God. What appears to be a single cross imposing itself is actually 4 kachinas which meet in the center. In Native American tribes, kachinas are Messengers of the Great Spirit. The kite is seen to be floating above a cloud-coverd orb.
