The maker of the Large Bear Sculpture in Black, Veran Pardeahtan, was raised in the Chirichua Mountains, Veran Apache heritage has significantly influenced his values and his artwork.
He states: “My work, which frequently includes representations of nature, and peace among the peoples of our world; promotes a sense of harmony. Inspiration is drawn from divergent elements in the environment. My art, through painting and pottery, gives a voice to the various aspects of nature.”
Veran’s images are derived from a traditionalist base, however he brings Native art and imagery into the 21st century, showing that Native art is not dead or stagnant, rather, it is alive and vibrant! Through his work Veran wishes to promote harmony among the four tribes of the world.
Each piece is unique and may be subtly different than the product image.
