went to look at Allen and Patty Eckman site.... great puzzle!! and on their site... WoW... this medium is a new one to me... certainly not paper mache,,, one of their 8x6 foot wall sculptures was $50,000...
Thanks Patti these are awesome...
Wow, someone has a lot of patience, -- not to mention talent! Thanks, Pat!
Thanks gnt .. nice to see you..
These people really do a great job .... thanks Katie...
The detail is stunning - thanks Pat!
Thanks warbler they sure did .... thanks for stopping in...javasage thanks for the input .... nice to see you..
The other principle that is oftentimes ignored or unknown, is every single part of the animal was used down to the hoofs (for glue!), unlike the gross slaughter Robbiel mentioned...sorry had to add my 2 cents! Amazing sculpture, thanks ! ;-)
I have to agree with Robbie. And they new how to take the weak and old ones in order to sustain themselves, knowing they would return to the earth as well.
Mandy .. really didn't mean too but since you mentioned it ...It is the circle of life... Thanks much...Hugs
I see it as the circle of life... without the animals the tribes would have perished. The animals provided food, clothing and shelter, all 3 of the most basic needs for human life. I am also reminded of the sacrifices made in the Bible, particularly relating to Passover! Thanks Pat for posting such a thought provoking image :~)
Thank you Robbie that what I was trying to say the way of life... I just knew you would help me...
Not to worry Ardy, they left the baby and mother. The hunters later would have killed all of them with their fancy guns. To me Indian philosophy is far superior to what was brought in later. I like this PK because it represents a way of life that makes sense in the raw. Thanks.
It is Amazing.... I guess it how things are looked at.. I just see a beautiful piece of art...Thanks Lorna..
It is another amazing sculpture, but I agree it isn't such an appealing one.
Thanks for being honest Ardy that's more than some would do.... Hugs
I know the Native Americans did not hunt fro sport but for necessity but I wouldn't want this sculpture. I see a baby about to be killed. It makes me sad. Sorry Pat.
