Creative Designs with Dream Catchers for Nails
Speaking of spiders that are behind the meaning of dreamcatchers, many cultures see these creatures as some creepy crawlers, but not the Ojibwa. In this tribe, a spider was considered to be a protector, something that brought comfort. The Ojibwa had a legend about a maternal and mystical Spider-Woman. This Spider was believed to protect the whole tribe spiritually, but especially those who needed it most – babies, kids, and young people.

But the population of the tribe was growing fast, so the territory it occupied spread farther. That meant that the Spider-Woman could no longer reach all members to watch over and protect them. That is how the first dream catcher was created – to reach all members of the tribe no matter how far they migrated. Then grandmothers and mothers began to follow the Spider’s example and recreated dreamcatchers to protect their families and children mystically. Now look at these amazing nail designs – it seems so exciting how much meaning there is behind this decorative element!
