"The-man-in-the-maze" is a very popular design that was originally created as an illustration of an emergence story by the Tohono o'odham or Papago Indians of the Central Valley in Arizona.
The little man is named "U'ki'ut'l" in their language. It has been adopted by many other people. It is significant of life's cycles and eternal motion and also of the choices we are always confronted with.
Correct choices lead us to harmony with all things, no matter how long & hard the road can get. Utilized by Hopi silversmiths as a way to showcase their high quality & technique.
