A FEW WORDS FROM THE ARTIST:   "This little Navajo girl is holding her lamb. The Spaniards brought the Churro breed of sheep to the US back in the 16th century. The Native American tribe the Navajos have been breeding them ever since. Now there are farms that specialize in breeding them since they almost died out. Both the meat is farmed and the wool is used to weave the Navajo rugs. The girl has a leather pouch that carries snacks like dried berries. She is wearing the traditional Navajo bun in her hair and moccasins typical to her tribe. I was in Santa Fe during the time of sculpting her and the granddaughter of one of the jewellers on the street was my model."  Vala Ola
