Chiricahua Apache Family


This Allan Houser bronze sculpture sits at the entrance to the Phoenician Resort just past the guard station.  The resort has a huge art collection and I've featured pieces from the collection in the past.  Somehow I never got around to posting this one.

I have a new post Sharon's Sojourns today.  One random photo taken on a road trip leads to an interesting bit of history.

The flowers in the foreground sets them off perfectly!

This sculpture has a touch of 'Nativity' to it don't you think Sharon?

Steve Reed said...

Nice! It is definitely a take on the Nativity, I think. You've posted other works by this sculptor before, haven't you?

Kate said...

What a beautiful and tender family scene. You know, I think, how much I love Houser!!

Birdman said...

...a proud mom and dad.

What a lovely setting, Sharon! It reminded me of the Nativity too.

I love this sculpture.

The male looks like he's thinking "why did we give up our land so easily?"

Jack said...

I like this grouping. It has much more detail than most Houser sculptures I have seen.

My favorite sculptor!

Kathy said...

It's a beautiful sculpture and I absolutely love it. However, I wish it could sit in a more realistic environment for the Apache. They just don't seem to be at home under palm trees!

The Holy Family in Chiricahua Apache style?

It's quite a sculpture... I do think some of the same as Kathy... perhaps in a different setting?
