This piece was inspired by the works of Georgia O’Keefe.  The churro sheep became a fundamental part of Navajo and Hopi economies after the arrival of the Spanish.  The stink beetle reminds us that we are guardians of the land, not owners.  Sculpted from butternut and mesquite on a buckeye burl-cap base with details in vera, ebony and brass. Finished with wood bleach, aniline dyes, enamel, and acrylic polyurethane.
