The Legend of Spiderwoman

Spider-Woman lives in Canyon de Chelly. One day she was weaving in her den when her light became blocked. It was Changing-Woman, looking down into her hole listening to her sing as she wove.

"What are you doing?", said Changing Woman

"I'm weaving", said Spider-Women, "Coming in. You are blocking my light, but you can watch."

 

Navajo blankets are among the most recognized in the world. This sculpture pays homage to Spiderwoman and the generations of Navajo weavers. The inner walls of the sculpture are finished to resemble the rain-washed walls of Canyon de Chelly while the outer folds are textured - reminiscent of the blankets the Navajo have weaved since Changing-Woman first learned the skill from Spider-Woman. A gentle and aged face looks down the extended right arm, welcoming - even beckoning - you in.

 

This is an open edition. Each casting will be marked with my marker's mark and the year it was cast.
