To the Navajo people, yazzi refers to something small. We call these two young women the Yazzie Sisters for their kinship, and Dennis Ross has brought these two siblings to life in diminutive scale. Dressed as corn maidens, these sisters, carved from cottonwood root, radiate style and charm.


About the artist:

Hopi/Navajo Folk Artist Dennis Ross

Asked how he first started carving, Dennis Ross answers with a laugh, "My brother - he gave me a knife, and a stone, and a piece of carving wood, and said, 'Here you go'." Dennis was twenty-six years old. His brother, Harry Bert, also gave him a little constructive criticism on that first experiment into the creative world of carving, but Dennis took it from there.
