Elizabeth Manygoats (Navajo/Diné, b. 1973) here presents a hand-fashioned pottery sheep with a whimsical red bird, perhaps a cardinal, sitting on its back. Elizabeth frequently recreates scenes from Navajo life, including the sheep--a staple of Navajo farming. This little guy has detailed features including an off-white curly pelt and a red bird taking a free ride. Signed on the bottom: "EM." Size: 4" L x 3" H.

CONDITION: Excellent.

Artist Bio: Elizabeth Manygoats (Navajo, b. 1973) considers her work to fall into the Navajo folk art category. She says she is self-taught, and she is the daughter of the renowned potter Betty Manygoats and is married to the Navajo potter Johnathan Chee. Many of her works portray everyday life on the Navajo reservation and such scenes include the livestock, native animals, hogans, and people living in harmony. She refers to such work as her "lifestyle pots."
