Native American Folk Art Carving of a Lizard by Charlie Willeto

About

A lizard form carved of cottonwood with pigments. About the Artist: A Navajo Sheepherder and medicine man, Charlie Willeto began carving in 1960, just four years before his death. He is now one of the best recognized Navajo folk artists. The book, "Charlie Willeto: The Visionary Carvings of a Navajo Artist" describes his work as "ritualist figures of human and animal forms that carry the potency of the Navajo spirit while transcending to the realm of the mythic." Messenger Service is offered to the Denver/Boulder metro area as well as other select Colorado locations. Expedited and International shipping is available. Please contact us for more information.
