Corn is one of the most important symbols of Native American society; it speaks of fertility, regeneration, and civilization. With the development of stable crops, the inhabitants of the American Southwest became more enduring, art flourished, and the population expanded. Dennis Ross celebrates this cultural icon in his Corn Dolls. This sweetly chubby cottonwood sculpture represents all the goodness provided by this bountiful sacred plant.


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.
