  • The Place of the Heart

    This design calls to mind the Pit River mythological being World’s Heart, te-ga-te-hataji, according to Floyd Buckskin, in a joint paper with Arlene Benson (Modoc 75; 1985). The authors describe the many ways the upper divided triangular motif, as World Heart with the connecting line(s) and the circles below, can be interpreted in Pit River myth.  They also note how this panel unites concepts of Pit River and Modoc myths. Photo Douglas Beauchamp 2013.
