Colorado Marble Pueblo Woman "Heart Locket" by Cliff Fragua (Jemez)

<< Previous in Large Scale Sculptures Next in Large Scale Sculptures >>
Price: $38,000.00
Item Number: CONSCF01
This elegant Pueblo woman with flowing hair came straight from the heart of Jemez Pueblo sculptor Cliff Fragua. Carved from beautiful white Colorado marble, she is wearing a traditional necklace and blanket, and holding a locket shaped like a heart in her hands. Cliff explains his motivation for her creation in this way: "I started this sculpture three months after I had a heart attack. Rather than wondering 'Why did this happen to me?', I felt that it was a gift. It opened my eyes to what I was doing with my life and I felt a great appreciation and gratefulness for what I have in my life especially for my family and all of the people I've worked with and have met. It was also an eye-opener for my family and friends. Things like this let us know what can happen and remind us of how precious life is."

Cliff comes from a well known family of Jemez potters. His work ranges from tabletop sculptures to larger than life works, in stone and bronze. His statue of the Pueblo leader Po'pay is the only piece by a Native American in the National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
