“What’s that?” I asked my friend Lehi, pointing at the large, silver ring on his index finger. Lehi is a talented artist and a Native American of Navajo descent.
“This?” he pulled off the ring and handed it to me. “It’s ‘the man in the maze.’ It’s a Native American symbol found in Southwest Arizona. It’s a symbol that reminds us that life is a maze and that we are wanderers just trying to find our way home.”
I stared at the ring for a while, letting the symbol sink in. As soon as I got home, I started researching “The Man in the Maze.” The story behind the symbol is beautiful.
