This is a very simple, but unique cedar carving of a Navajo man holding the barrel of a rifle, wearing a bolo tie and a  hat. There are native symbols carved into the surrounding wood. This is a very striking carving. This wonderful piece is carved from reclaimed fence posts on the Navajo reservation.

Condition: Very Good – original condition- the hat has a wood split along a knot hole, but is intact. This does not affect the stability or quality of the sculpture.
Provenance: Acquired from Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, Santa Fe.
