“Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Shivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our time, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics.”

Hopi katsinas by Brian Honyouti c.1900

"When I hear the songs the katsinas sing, a lot of songs telling us exactly how we should be as people, how we should treat each other; how we should treat the area we live in, and how we should treat other people, and how we are going to get blessed if we become the humble people that we should be.
