Artist's Description

Tsé Bit’ A’í – Rock With Wings
Original oil painting on 11 X 14 stretched Canvas
Known today most commonly by the name Shiprock, located in northwestern New Mexico, is a most impressive. Located on the Navajo Reservation in the Four Corners area, south of Hwy 64 and west of Hwy 666, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado in the Southwestern USA, the 1700-foot eroded volcanic plume
Tsé Bit’ A’í or the Rock with Wings is sacred to the Navaho’s. Geologists tell us the rock was formed 12 million years ago during the Pliocene. From ancient times to the more recent past, Tse Bi dahi was indeed a pilgrimage place of major importance, the destination of young men engaged in the rigors of solitary vision quests. The rock was climbed in 1939. Since 1970, Shiprock has been off limits to climbers, accorded once again the respect due a Navaho sacred place.
