Finally found some time to work on new work. I’ve been working out in my head the design and construction for these ornies.

Yei

 The Yei is regarded as a supernatural being by the Navajo, and they are believed to be the first to inhabit the earth. Before the Yei left earth, they left instructions with the people on how to live an easier life.

The male Yei is depicted in sandpaintings with a round head and the female Yei has an angular head.

Assemblage – Totem

This assemblage piece was created about a year ago using harvested tree bark that was given to me by a fellow club member. Other items are old rusted hardware, found objects, beads, and wire.
