The Huichol Indians live in the remote mountains of Nayarit and Jalisco, Mexico where they were untouched by the Spanish invaders. Each Huichol mask, in addition to being a beautiful work of art, has it's own historical and spiritual significance because the patterns reflect designs and images sacred to their cosmology where religion, life and art are inextricably intertwined. 11.5 inches by 6 inches at its widest, this carved wooden mask is coated in wax and painstakingly set with hundreds of tiny beads applied one at a time by means of a sewing needle or cactus thorn. It is in excellent condition except for the hanging ribbon which was imbedded into the back of the mask. See photos.

Inspired by a cache of prehistoric Vietnamese jade tools, this is a totally handmade kiln cast lead crystal sculpture from the artist's "Tools for the New Millennium" Collection. Besides being an antiques dealer, I am also a sculptor. I work alone, without an assistant, and control all aspects of the creation of the piece. Size and technical wizardry are not my goals. Synthesis and symbol are. My work merges past with present, form with content. They are relics of civilization. Ask to see my Artist's Statement for this series and I will email it to you This piece is about 12 inches high & comes with a custom made stand.

Viewers have been asking me what is that first image on my home page? No, it’s NOT a lava lamp. It’s a lead crystal sculpture of a prehistoric tool which I made. Besides being an antiques dealer, I am also a sculptor. I work alone, without an assistant, and control all aspects of the creation of the piece. Size and technical wizardry are not my goals. Synthesis and symbol are. My work merges past with present, form with content. They are relics of civilization. This piece is about 10 inches high, comes with a custom made stand and is for sale. Ask me about my other work, and I just might put some more on.
