Egg Tempera
15 x 20 inches

The artist has had a fascination with artifacts ever since he found his first arrowhead on his sister’s farm. Here in these Native American potato stamped baskets, which came from Maine, the artist couldn’t help but see the similarity of the designs on the baskets to their depictions of animals and other symbols on rock walls. To the artist, these small decorations took on all of the qualities of their rock art and became tiny “Petroglyphs”.
