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 butterfly. The butterfly is a symbol of beauty and a sign of warmer weather. 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 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.
