Gloss:
In carving this work, Doug Hyde allowed ". . .the individual characteristics of the material-the shape, the color, the grains and the texture-to suggest the flow of the design." Of Nez Perce, Assiniboine and Chippewa heritage, Hyde creates sculptures that are modern, highly personal interpretations of either traditional Indian mythology or conditions of contemporary Indian life. This sculpture is based on a story about Coyote and His Daughter.
