His sculptures of animals are collected by happy connaisseurs all over the world; Once in a while, this artist also carves human heads, as here. This bust of a Plains warrior is complete with flowing hair, bone choker, and spray of feathers – all carved from one piece of pearly alabaster. There is a sense of strength about this sculpture; not only physical, but spiritual. Repeated diagonals in the feathers, the sweep of the hair, and the lines of the choker, seen especially in profile, give this piece a surge of energy. The rounded wood base contrasts handsomely in color and form, but also echoes the curving arcs of the hair. Just the right size for office or home shelf, desk, mantel or table top, this sculpture honors long-ago warriors. It is handsomely relevant today.
