Dance of Sun and Moon

Great Spirit.jpg

Presented to the City of Spokane Valley by the Spokane Valley Arts Council March 25, 2015


"This sculpture is my interpretation of a Native American legend: Sun made a daily journey across the horizon to the west where he entered his lodge to pass the night. Moon, his wife, also dwelt in the Sun's lodge, but they would only see each other in passing each morning and evening. "Although our time together is fleeting, our love is deep and everlasting" In 2005 the first in this edition was purchased for Casa del Sol y Luna Museum in Lake Forest, IL, and in 2015 one in this monumental edition was purchased for the city of Spokane Valley's permanent art collection."
