The concept of the “circle of life” perpetuates throughout a multitude of cultures (popular and otherwise). It famously appears in Disney’s The Lion King, but also commonly crops up in Native American works of art. Instead of appreciating the circle, the Western mindset usually skews egocentric. After all, life ends when the individual takes his last breath, right? Not according to Native thought and art. Life never ends, and the medicine wheel was created to represent it. The wheel is constructed by laying stones in a pattern on the ground with “spokes” that can represent different ideas to different tribes.
