Colorado Marble Eagle "Flying Through the Abstract"by Rollie Grandbois (Turtle Mountain Chippewa)

<< Previous in Sculpture/Carvings Next in Sculpture/Carvings >>
Price: $16,000.00
Item Number: CONSRG01
Rollie Grandbois' eagle carved from white Colorado marble is soaring through time and space as it takes our prayers to the Creator. Perched on its steel base, its commanding presence watches over us, no matter if it has landed in a garden or a grand foyer. Rollie states, "Many of my themes incorporate a stylized eagle, singing a song of freedom or carrying our prayers to the Creator. This piece combines the contemporary on one side with the traditional on the other. It reminds us of how you can fly through one era to the next. It also represents all of the changes Ive seen in my years on this earth".

 Rollie grew up on the Chippewa Reservation in Belcourt, North Dakota, and studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe. Sculpting for over 25 years, his work can be found in public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Japan.

SAD NEWS OF THE PASSING OF ROLLIE GRANDBOIS (TURTLE MOUNTAIN CHIPPEWA) MAY 2016

 We are very saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Rollie Grandbois (Turtle Mountain Chippewa). We extend our deepest sympathy to Rollie’s family and close friends at this sad time.

Rollie was an artist with the gift of capturing both beauty and power in his sculpture. A lifetime artist who sculpted for more than 35 years, Rollie was not only well-recognized for his sculpture, but also was looked to as a leader in the world of American Indian art. Rollie inspired and brought artists together through programs and workshops, and helped to reinvigorate the art of sculpture. We are thankful that his work graces the Shop's Sculpture Garden, for all of his support and words of wisdom, and for his contributions of time and energy to the benefit of the arts that he so loved.

Rollie Grandbois’s significant presence will be missed by so many throughout the American Indian art community - artists, patrons, galleries, museums and more across the nation and beyond.
