New Mexico's distinctive Zia Sun Symbol originated with the Indians of Zia Pueblo in ancient times. Four is the sacred number of Zia, and the figure is composed of a circle from which four points radiate.
To the Zia Indian, the sacred number four is embodied in the earth, with its four directions; in the year, with its four seasons; in the day, with the sunrise, noon, evening, and night; in life, with its four divisions - childhood, youth, adulthood, and old age. Everything is bound together in a circle of life and love, without beginning, without end.
The Zia on these t-shirts is printed in a "distressed" style - for that bohemian, worn-in look. Available in Men's (turquoise Zia on black) and Women's (yellow on chestnut) style t-shirts.
