«sol taino 1»

acrylic on canvas

this is one of a few taíno sun symbols. the taínos are the indigenous people of puerto rico and other areas of the carribean and antilles — the first indigenous people ot encounter christopher columbus. not only are the taínos part of of my ancestry, their beliefs and art totally fascinate me. the taínos believed that the sun and moon come from the cave mautiatbuel, taking each other’s place in the sky at dawn and dusk. i orginally planned on painting this canvas with four of the main taíno sun symbols i see (image 2 from but this one held it's own and quickly became my favorite.
