Datura Moon Hat by Carolyn Schmitz
A mule deer, resplendent under the rising moon, is greeted by gasps of awe at the Wild Hat celebration. Held in place by a lacy fretwork of cactus fiber are the glowing, scented blooms of sacred datura and evening primrose with curls of scorpion tails. Dangling mesquite pods and rattlesnake rattles make soft sounds as she moves. Aware that her design could arouse the jealousy of the big cats, she has entwined her throat with dangerously sharp devil’s claws and datura seedpods, to make them think twice about starting a fracas.
