April’s Pink Moon. A beautiful spring moon named for the creeping phlox pink blooms that spread across the landscape. This piece is the only of the full moons that doesn’t actually feature a moon at all. Instead it is a cascade of art nouveau lines and swirls, representing that giddy head swirl that spring brings. The center piece is a bouquet of lilies ad sitting above always watching and observing are a chain of folk bunnies. This piece is made from hand cut paper, it is framed in a 12×16″ black frame and ready to hang.
Full Moon names have been used by many cultures to describe the full moon throughout the year. Specifically, Native American tribes used moon phases and cycles to keep track of the seasons by giving a distinctive name to each recurring full moon, including the Flower Moon. The unique full moon names were used to identify the entire month during which each occurred.
Although many Native American tribes gave distinct names to the full moon, the most well known full moon names come from the Algonquin tribes who lived in the area of New England and westward to Lake Superior. The Algonquin tribes had perhaps the greatest effect on the early European settlers in America, and the settlers adopted the Native American habit of naming the full moons.
