Folk art around the world is receiving attention as a dynamic and must see art form. Often called "outsider art," as it is usually made by individuals outside the realm of academic or studied art, folk art is generally unique to an individual and is often "divinely" inspired. Many traditional forms of American Indian art were once referred to as folk art, but are now treated as cultural and even fine art. Folk art is its own category and there are just a handful of practitioners. While I hope bring you more examples as future projects dictate I am delighted to offer these sculptures by the "grandfather" of Navajo folk art.
