Tribal Art - New Navajo Folk Art Arrives

At Aboriginals/TribalWorks, we have long admired Navajo artists' wonderful tradition of folk art.

Ranging from chickens to totemic figures to critters like owls and farm animals, there is a wonderful inventiveness and sense of humor to this work.

This blog features new pieces that have arrived in our collection, based on continuous demand for chickens and owls. Click on each image to go to pages with larger pictures and more details.

Green & White Chicken by Jim & Jessie John, 13" tall

Red & White Chicken by Guy and Edith John, 9" tall

Blue & black chicken by Guy & Edith John, 12" tall

Red owl by Guy and Edith John, 7 1/2" tall

Blue owl by Guy & Edith John, 7" tall

White and black chicken by Guy & Edith John, 15 1/2" tall

Blue and white chicken by Edith & Guy John, 18" tall

Of course, with July 4th right around the corner, we would be unpatriotic not to point out the red, white and blue pieces that come from Navajo folk artists.
