Marvin Jim is an accomplished woodcarver. Surely that's why his depiction of the Wolf Chief captures the myths and legends surrounding this wondrous creature. Sitting upon a rock dais, the Wolf Chief rules over all creatures that fly, crawl, run or swim. That has to be a huge job, but this lobo seems to have his work well under control. Because of its fibrous nature, and since it is both soft and durable, Marvin carves with cottonwood root, which is the traditional material for Navajo sculptures. May this old boy reign forever, and may Marvin continue to carve for a long time.

About the artist:

Marvin Jim

Marvin Jim - Animal Sculptures:
Based upon the Navajo creation tales, the sculptures of Marvin Jim reflect a time long ago, when animals and humans walked and worked together to create a new world. These traditional stories speak of conversations among all beings, of behaving in a manner of mutual respect and of all beings having an equal position in the community. These legends are an essential part of the Navajo culture. The tales are of universal interaction, compassion and tolerance; the things necessary to live a balanced existence.
