Description: 
From Pueblo Indian Painting. p. 17: Skunks surrounded by sky crescent with cloud terraces and by the symbol of the sun. The skunk is an earth-nesting animal and his black and white pelt is employed by the Pueblo Indians as an ankle ornament in many of their ceremonial dances. It is probably an emblem of the earth.
