Utah Alabaster

11" x 17" x 8"

“The Courting Blanket” is carved from Utah alabaster.  I was able to see the 2 different colors in the stone and designed the piece to highlight the unique coloring.  God made the colors so vibrant that I thought they would be perfectly colored for this special courting blanket. According to the Kachina House website, “It was customary for a Native American man to approach his mother about the woman he loved. The female members of his family would weave a special blanket for the man to present to the woman of his fancy.”  This couple is having a very intimate conversation under the courting blanket.
