Sheesh! Another gallery I haven't visited. Another reason for me to get down there...like a need a reason! hahaha...

Lowell said...

I wonder if the name should be "Maize Maiden"? Just kidding. Certainly is an appropriate statue for a Native American place.

Interesting choice of sculpture to be in front of a gallery that specializes in Native American art. :)

She appears to have had a bountiful harvest. Almost planting time again!

It's a wonderful sculpture but what I really like is that building with the turquoise trim.

That's a neat sculpture of a Native American and one of the "three sisters" (corn, squash, beans).

This is such a peaceful scene.

I like the look of that sculpture - though agree with Tanya it should be called Maize:)

I've just been rummaging around on that link to Sherwoods Gallery. Wow, what a place!
Love the adobe and blue trim in the background!

I like it, it is modern and traditional at the same time...

Thérèse said...

It reminds me of the artist Gamboro, Indian American but I don't remember her tribe (it's not a Hopi) but she makes the same kind of sculptures... and I like the way these kinds of sculptures remind us that the Earth provides food and that we have to be thankful for it.

Another place you'd find me at! I'm not as familiar with Southwestern Native American traditions though so I have a lot to learn, but I have heard of corn maidens before. Lovely background too!

Great shot, Randy. Thank for your loyalty and continuing visits over the past few weeks.
I have been putting in 12-hour days six days a week at work and it's been a major effort maintains my daily posts. Have missed visiting friends' blogs...

Lúcia said...

It's a nice sculpture, I'm sure the museum is very interesting too! ;-)

Judy said...

Nice one, Randy. And the setting looks quite charming, too.

What a beautiful sculpture!! Amazing to think how long it must take to sculpt something that magnificent.

Native American art in Santa Fe is usually of high quality.
