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. 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.
I added the stink beetle to remind us that we are guardians of the land, not its owners.
A buckeye burl cap provides a very dramatic and appropriate base. Note the small yucca sprout carved from vera wood.
