Indian Market VI: Sculpture


This beautiful sculpture is the work of Oreland C. Joe. He is a Jewelry/Sculpture artist from the Navajo Nation. This is from his website "Oreland C. Joe's Favorite stone medium is marble. Marble that is imported from Italy (carrara, statuary white and bardiglio), Portugal, Belgium, Spain and other countries. Domestic marbles used for sculpture are from Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Georgia." Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

This is amazing. Imagine the time, let alone the skill required to create such a piece. Someday I'd love to learn how to sculpt...
