Cliff Fragua hales from Jemez

Pueblo. He learned his craft

under the careful guidance of

Alan Houser, one of the finest

sculptors ever.

Today, Fragua has assumed his

place among the greats of

sculpting .

Fragua, has been awarded one

of the most prestigious commis-

sions for sculptors in the United

States. His rendition of Popé

has been selected to represent

the State of New Mexico in the

National Statuary Hall in

Washington, DC. The artist

selection was made in Decem-

ber of 1999 based on a ma-

quette (or model) of Popé that

was submitted to the New Mex-

ico Statuary Hall Commission.

The sculpture will be made

from Tennessee marble, and

stand approximately 7 feet

tall. It is scheduled for comple-

tion and dedication in 2004.

Cliff Fragua

Just as with any fine art, a

beautifully created Native

American piece can find a com-

fortable place in any fine home.

The elegant work of an artist

like Sandra Victorino, Acoma

Pueblo, fits easily with many

decorating themes...and cer-

tainly compliments most styles

of interior decoration.

One of the biggest mispercep-

tions about American Indian

Art is that it belongs exclusively

in a Southwest décor.

Truth is, a fine piece of hand

crafted Pueblo Pottery, or a

finely woven Navajo textile

provides a beautiful compli-

ment to nearly any fine decorat-

ing style, from traditional to

colonial to prairie.
