This design represents a corn stalk with all four colors of corn sacred to Native Americans, (yellow, red, blue and white), growing on it. It was conceived and added to the mural by the artist to represent the significance of corn to many of the Native American Cultures represented by these patterns and designs. It also has personal significance to Borofsky, who collected varieties of corn seed throughout Mezo-America and spent years experimenting with different heiorloom strains of the cultural staple in his native Vermont.
