Renowned sculptor Cliff Fra-

gua, Jemez Pueblo, will make

River Trading Post, Scottsdale

his home during the first three

months of the new year.

Visitors to Scottsdale during

January, February and March

will have the opportunity to

visit a fully working version of

Fragua’s famed

Singing Stone

Studio

at River Trading Post,

Scottsdale.

During his RTP residency, Fra-

gua will create a number of

important new sculptures, in-

cluding three special limited

edition bronze pieces that will

be available to River Trading

Post visitors.

Among Cliff Fragua’s most

important work, is his rendition

of Po’Pay, that was carved

from a 7.5 ton block of Tennes-

see pink marble.

Po’Pay, described as the leader

of the “First American Revolu-

tion,” was the visionary leader

of the Pueblo Revolt of 1680,

which drove the Spanish con-

querors out of New Mexico for

twelve years.

The seven-foot-high statue of

Po’pay is on permanent display

at the U.S. Statuary Hall, and is

the only statue carved by a Na-

tive American sculptor dis-

played in the hall.
