Navajo Sculpture

One of my favorites outside of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. It's called "Plant Yei, Protection Yei, Plant Yei" by Navajo artist Fred Begay.

Love this primitive art,
especially against that adobe wall.
Very special.

Cool! I'm betting they have significant meaning although I know not what.

Oh wow this is so cool. They look like Gods!

I like this, also. Very simple yet poignant. It would be interesting to know how the artist interprets it, although I'm sure there are many references to Navajo life.

Your photos lead me to believe that Santa Fe is a place I want to spend some time in.

The sculptures look quite simple, but they are really expressive!

I'm not too familiar with the Southwestern meanings. I'm hoping to correct that... :-)
