For the American Indians the dream catcher is a well-known symbol. It's a symbol that has become very popular for both men and women. The basic design is a circle with a network inside and can be enhanced with the addition of beads, stones, arrowheads and feathers. Its origins are common to many indigenous tribes and its culture come from the mythical woman-spider.
It was believed that she would visit the newborn babies, weaving a cloth to protect them from harm. Over time, however, she could not visit all the children and that is why the women of the tribes began to realize the dream catcher (sometimes modeled with 8 tips to simulate the spider's legs) to protect the baby.
The canvas is designed to allow for only good dreams.
