“Seated Star Gazer”, Bronze by Jill Shwaiko Bentz

Having visited a number of the Anasazi ruins in the Southwest, Jill found the big horn sheep petroglyphs to have a language of their own. In her work she has expressed the tipping of their heads upward for pride and lower for perseverance. The horns that go backwards represent swiftness, while the legs reflect gracefulness. This piece is one in an edition of 35. Jill shows her work locally at Carol LaRoche on Canyon Road and Indigo Gallery in Madrid.
