dhSeadragon Tsegi at Baby Rock

Tsegi at Baby Rock

If you have ever driven through the four corners, it is probable that you have passed Baby Rock.  Baby Rock is a striking rock formation in Arizona.  The orangy red varnished boulders look like they bubbled straight up in columns and then froze that way.  There is also a grouping, separated from the rest, that looks like a giant head (maybe the baby namesake)?

Just east of Baby Rock is a town called Tsegi.  Tsegi is a Navajo word meaning deep canyon.  It is usually at this point in my travels when I start to see a lot of wild horses.  Tsegi at Baby Rock is inspired by those rugged and beautiful horses that wend there way through the painted desert.

What better horse to be portrayed in this sculpture than the medicine hat horse.  A medicine hat is a very rare paint that is mostly white with a dark colored cap and ears. Usually it has ghostly blue eyes.  Plains tribes considered the medicine hat to have supernatural powers.  They believed the horse would warn it’s rider of danger and protect him from injury or death.

BTW, did you know that a portion of all dhSeadragon sales goes toward groups that protect, help rehabilitate, and act as stewards for our wildlife.

Making the world a brighter place one smile at a time!

    dhSeadragon

      My years at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ provided me with a wealth of opportunity to expand my background in art.  I was no longer confined to a small studio and therefore could make my projects mammoth if I chose to do so.  I was able to try my hand at set design, wood working, lights, etc…but I found that working with metal gave me the most satisfaction.
    While in college, we were assigned the task of creating a nom de plume. dh is the first letter of my first and last name. Seadragon is a nickname dubbed to me by my father.
    After graduating with my degree in fine art, the name stayed with me. Today, most of my art is signed dhSeadragon.
