A lot of hand-carved Navajo chickens have passed through the trading post over the years, but probably none of them have had the personality of Rena Juan’s Big Yellow Chicken. Clearly, this Big Mama Hen rules the roost and never backs down from any challenge. Using a technique called chip carving, Rena gouged out the feathers, wings, and other details of this most commanding bird.


About the artist:

Rena Juan Rena Tahy - Wood Carver:
Nominee of a Utah Governor's Folk Artist Award, Rena Juan has multiple talents up her sleeve that she produces when the need arises- like rug weaving and clay pottery- but wood carving is what she loves doing most, and it shows in her pieces. Rena takes an old dead piece of cottonwood, pine, or basswood, rough cuts it with a chainsaw, then begins carving new life into it. When she is finished, her carved and painted figures represent the Navajo lifestyle both in form and in spirit, creating an aura of realism, warmth, and personality.
