Hopi Bird-Eating-Fish

Some of the iconography of the ancestors of the modern-day Hopi Indians is fairly transparent. In some cases, such as the one above, the paintings are pretty realistic, but the symbolism is really obscure. This is a painting from the wall of the Desert View Watchtower at the Grand Canyon National Park. This same motif is not that uncommon.
