Symbolism of the Original Sculpture:
"BALANCED IN NATIVE YIN AND YANG"
In Native American tradition all of nature can teach us something, or provide us with something we need, mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Through this ideology, the Native "medicine" of the Lizard Animal Spirit shows us how to reach our Hopes and Desires.
Astrological tradition tells us that people born to the Zodiac Sign of Libra are known for their Sense of justice, fairness, and harmony, and thus the Symbol of Libra is the Scales of Balance & Justice. The animal-symbol for Libra is the Lizard, therefore the Lizards here display Balance within the Medicine Wheel.
In Eastern Philosophy Yin and Yang are the two Complimentary Forces that make up all aspects of Life: Light - Dark, Male - Female, Passivity - Activity, Heaven - Earth. Together, Yin and Yang bring Harmony and Balance to the Universe.

I learned about the traditional Navajo sand art, commonly known as Sand Painting, from a Native co-worker when I was stationed in New Mexico in the 1990's. From there, I have developed my own signature sand sculpture style, which literally builds up upon the traditional technique. In respect for the origins of this art form, I have embarked upon my Native American Medicine Wheel series. In each sculpture I take an animal and attempt to help the viewer understand various Native American "medicines" through symbolism.
