Ascension Tee

$30.00

This tee was designed by Navajo artist Dustin Martin for his company SOLO (Sovereign Original Land Owners).
This emblem is an abstract schematic of the designer's understanding of creation and the Diné homeland. The "peaks" that surround the perimeter of the design represent landmarks that denote the boundaries of Dinétah (Navajo land). Inside, four concentric voids mark the edge of worlds beneath us. Many Navajos believe our ancestors ascended through these worlds over the course of many years to arrive in the "glittering world" we inhabit today. The memory of this process of evolution is what helps modern beings maintain balance in a chaotic world.
  • Black ink on earth green unisex tee (100% cotton) athletic fit
  • White ink on unisex long sleeve black tee (100% cotton)
  • Dustin Martin is a Navajo artist whose work is inspired by Navajo traditional knowledge and cosmology.
