Symbolism of the Original Sculpture:
"A TRUE LEADER - PUUKU (HORSE)"
"Puuku" is the Native American Comanche, or Numunu word for "Horse."
Horse teaches traits of a good Leader by reminding us that abuse of power does not lead to wisdom, & by showing us how to balance heavy workloads with the joy of play.
Horse teaches us that true power is given to those who are willing to carry responsibility in a balanced manner, & that Compassion, Caring, Teaching, Loving, & Sharing make a True Leader.
The Feather pointed down marks the Tribal Chief as a Man of Peace. The Yellow Cross on the Neck represents the Four Directions & Peace. The Red Circle around the Eye aids in the ability to see Danger ahead. The Three Blue Notches on the Nose represent the Number of War Honors. The Beaded Diamond shape on the Medicine Bag is symbol of the Medicine Man’s Eye, for he advises the Chief in many matters.
Embedded into the sand is Tiger’s Eye within the center of the Medicine Bag which sharpens our Inner Vision & better understanding of the cause & effect of each situation. It encourages us to use our powers wisely, & allows information to be brought together in a cohesive whole.

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.
