Native American Hopi Made Spirit Mask
Native American Hopi Made Spirit Mask by Richard Gorman
This wonderful solid wood mask is a new art form for Richard Gorman. Four directions and migration are among the symbols painted onto the surface as well as a beautiful hummingbird. The hummingbird is a symbol of summer, beauty and the ability to make time stand still. Beautiful feathers from many different birds adorn the piece. The earrings and shell medallion are carved from wood as well. The beautiful colors are a reminder of the sunrise in the southwest desert. A great new style for Richard whose combined Hopi/Navajo heritage brings symbolic meaning from both cultures to his work.
