NAVAJO FOLK ART BEAR BY MARVIN JIM

Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

Strong and impressive, this bear is hand carved out of wood with a generous amount of detail and precision.  Marvin Jim is one of the most innovative Navajo folk art carvers.  As a child, Marvin Jim carved his own toy trucks and people from wood, because there were no commercial toys available.  After marrying Grace Begay, who came from a family of family of weavers, wood carvers and basket makers, he was encouraged to start carving again by her.

Signed.

3” tall x 5  1/4” long x 1  3/4” wide


In recent years, wood figurines hand carved by self-taught Navajo artists have developed into Navajo Folk Art.  These carvings of traditional personal images and indigenous animals are characteristic of the cultural integrity on the Navajo people.  Strong cultural values provide for and sustain the artistic traditions of the Navajo.
