Colorado Alabaster

13.25" x 9.75" x 8"

“Where the Wind Blows” is carved from a weathered piece of Colorado alabaster.  I was intrigued by the wind and water-carved stone when I saw it in the stone yard.  I could see the bird shape already in the shape of the stone, then, inspired by a photograph by Edward Curtis of a warrior named Shot in the Hand with a unique stand-up-in-the-front hair-do, I incorporated my version of this warrior on the backside of the bird’s tail.  I also wanted to depict the importance of the whole ecosystem, the wind and the rain, the animals, and the community.
