Originally carved from Mahogany , most of these Hydrostone Castings are dramatic reproductions of actual historic sites in the Southwest, honoring the ancient Native American peoples who lived there centuries ago...Others are heartfelt and inspirational gift of Love, Faith, Courage and Optimism- with sentiments written to accompany each sculpture.

A sturdy hanger is embedded in the back- NO FRAME NEEDED A descriptive, often inspirational label is included on the back of each casting.

This sculpture of Oak Tree House, Mesa Verde picturesque ruin contained around fifty five living areas and six kivas (ceremonial rooms, commonly located underground). Most of the rooms squeezed onto the narrow upper ledge were for storage, only a few were living rooms. They were entered by ladders from the roofs of multistory rooms in the lower cave. Pottery shards found here have given archaeologists invaluable information about the art and culture of the people who lived here almost 800 years ago. It was inspirational gift !

It was summer in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico and it was HOT ! I was just about to step through this doorway when I got the feeling I was being watched. My senses were heightened and fortunately kept me from stepping on the rattlesnake lying in the cool shade just inside the doorway!
It seemed as though the spirit of an Ancient Anasazi had hung around
to look after those respectful visitors who happened to pass this way... I'm glad she did and I'm grateful for the inspirational gift of that adventure ! I created this sculpture to honor her memory.
I created this art and wrote the following story to accompany it:
"I am here when you think of me.
I am in your mind when you dream of me.
I am in your heart when you
honor me with your memories.
Because you love me, my spirit lingers... "
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
This is a content preview space you can use to get your audience interested in what you have to say so they can’t wait to learn and read more. Pull out the most interesting detail that appears on the page and write it here.
Whenever I travel, I take a small heart-shaped rock to remind me of my loved ones waiting at home. Whenever my wife travels I leave a light in the window to "guide her home" to me.
I created this sculpture as a gift to remind her our hearts are never far apart...
I wrote this to go on the back:
"You have been a part of my life for so long, it’s hard to leave you,
even for a short time.
This vessel filled with my love watches over you until I see you again.
As we carry reminders of home on our Journeys,
this is a reminder that I’ll return to you ..."
This 5" x 9" sculpture makes an inspirational gift for a special homecoming !
Going through some changes or know someone who is?
This hand painted hydrostone sculpture makes an inspirational gift to meditate on!
A handmade gift of art for the right person at the right time...
I wrote the following sentiment to accompany the sculpture:
"These doorways at Pueblo Bonito
in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico
speak of paths taken
and paths we have yet to choose.
We can look back
through the doorways of our past
to reflect and learn,
so we can go forward
through the doors
of our hopes and dreams."
I wrote the following sentiment to accompany the sculpture:
As the Anasazi were preparing for their departure from Mesa Verde, legend has it that the Village Elder gathered the people around him and said, "I am too old and frail to make the journey with you. I will stay behind. And when I pass into the Spirit World, I will leave a Spruce Tree to remind everyone of my everlasting love for you."
When ranchers discovered Mesa Verde in the 1880's they found a large Colorado Blue Spruce growing from the front of this dwelling to the top of the mesa, Spruce Tree House, Mesa Verde, quietly gives testimony to the Ancient Ones who came before us - the Grandfathers who told the stories of their time for us to learn from & honor.
Let us always remember the inspirational gift our elders can give us...
We think about someone they're obviously in our mind.. More importantly, they are in our hearts. Whether they're in the next room, another country or in the Spirit World, how we feel brings them to us - what we do with those feelings is up to us...
This "Spirit Woman" came to me in a dream I had after visiting Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. She said, "the memories you have of me are Gifts of Love from my heart to yours. They are meant to heal your heart - or if your heart is at peace, then pass my Gift on to those who need it..."
That powerful dream was an inspirational gift - I hope you like this sculpture
and pass it's message on...
" Wherever you go, however far, my love goes along.
You’re never alone, for my spirit is with you
and I am honored by your thoughts and your love.
Now and forever, I am with you. "
Long House in Mesa Verde National Park, near Durango, Colorado is
second in size only to Cliff Palace, Long House was home to nearly 200 Anasazi.
Cotton robes and textiles were woven on looms anchored near this tower.
A spring at the back of the
dwelling provided fresh water. From this special sculpture
we can learn much from the art and culture of that thrived centuries ago.
What an inspirational gift !
