Navajo Carver: Harold Davidson
A Navajo artist recognized for his finely detailed alabaster table fetishes, Harold Davidson captures the beauty of Mother Earth in the animals he creates. Davidson’s most common subjects are charming domestic animals: horses, sheep, goats, and quail – all in an abstract, yet winningly realistic manner.
Carved in a variety of sizes, Davidson decorates each piece with radiant feathers attached by colorful beads. Navajo fetishes represent a specific area of Navajo art and culture, often misunderstood and sometimes misrepresented.
