Nez Perce Warrior
One of the many fine artists whose name is unknown to most people, Paul Toya quietly produces interesting sculptures at accessible prices. This proud Nez Perce warrior bust is an example.Rich, russet alabaster is the stone,. When chiseled lightly, it shows as white, for a dramatic contrast. The face paint, hair style and beaded bib mark this as a warrior of the northern Plains tribe. The vertical thrust of the piece underlines the proudly erect posture of a warrior; the trapezoid form of the base works well with the shape of the sculpture.Arresting in the powerful stillness of the figure, the compact form and size of the sculpture makes it ideal for desk, shelf or table top. Handsome work at a happy price point.
