Our Artwork Inspired by Designs from North American Cultures
[Sculpture of Elk Showing Internals]
NA-MI-ElkInternals
This sculpture depicts an elk with its internal organs. The X-Ray rendering may have been used for a hunting magic, or it may be part of a shamanistic ritual involving deconstruction and rebirth. From the American southwest.
[Sculpture of Man With Shield and Spear]
NA-MI-ManShieldSpear
This sculpture depicts a man with a shield and a spear. From the American southwest.
[Sculpture of Coitus]
NA-MI-Coitus
This sculpture is a fertility symbol depicting coitus. Given the hard life in the southwest and the fragility of many communities, the generative process was considered to be of great religious significance since it meant the difference between existence and extinction. From the American southwest.
