Navajo sculptor, RICKY NEZ, is a young aspiring artist. In his early thirties, Ricky has already made a name for himself by winning enumerable sculpting awards presented by his peers.
Completely self-taught, Ricky has proven to be quite adept in bringing Navajo stories to reality through sculpting.
Once he has sketched his ideas, he then begins to masterfully chisel the stone by utilizing hand and power tools. After the figure has emerged, the tedious finishing process begins; meticulously sanding every part of the sculpture until it gleams like a jewel and is silky smooth to the touch.
Collectors from all over the country have been acquiring Ricky Nez sculptures. They see him ascending the ladder of renown Indian artists.
