Marvin Jim’s current series of very fine wood carvings continues with a piece we call the Noble Horse Woman. Again, harkening back to earlier days of Navajo lore when animals and people lived together in harmony, this mare is adorned with beautiful jewelry and wrapped in a classic early blanket. She is a figure of great dignity and character and shows what a fine craftsman can achieve with a knife, cottonwood root, and paint.

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.
