Goddess of Flight

The Flint Boys is the name given to the Pleiades by the Navajo. According to Navajo myth, after the Earth was separated from the sky, Black God had a cluster of seven stars on his ankle. This image shows a sketch of the face of Black God, the Navajo sky god who is depicted as a schematic sky map with a crescent moon on his forehead, the sun as his nose, and the line between them would represent the ecliptic astride where the Pleiades appear.
