As the ninety-ninth of the symbols, I chose a Native American symbol for Rain. It’s important for life but it can be both life-giving and potentially deadly. The overall meaning of the symbol changes depending on the need for rain. Rain is a symbol of tears, sadness, sorrow, anger, cleansing, change, renewal, forgiveness, and usually on a large scale. Rain and raindrops were used as symbols of bountiful crops and of fertility. The background texture was created to resemble sand by using a toothbrush to create a pattern of tiny droplets.
