About

Making New Friends, teal aluminum sculpture Korean & Navajo Women outdoor heart New sculpture featured in the exhibit for Melanie Yazzie at the Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico "Weaving Memory:Works by Melanie Yazzie". Powder coated aluminum limited edition of 8 Melanie was invited to Icheon, Korea in 2011 and asked to create a sculpture. She conceptualized this piece and is now fabricated in aluminum with a teal with a gold shimmer in the powder coated surface. Melanie researched the hair styles, clothing, colors and customs of Korean women and compared them to those of Navajo women. The Korean woman has fish images in her skirt and the Navajo woman has corn plants in her skirt. The Korean woman has a chicken on her head and the Navajo woman has a dog on her head. Her Grandmother had a small dog named Pedro who inspired the dog. The color she chose is a teal with a faint gold shimmer. These colors are used to mark a public space in Korea for an auspicious beginning and in Navajo both colors are used for protection and representing purity.
