High quality and highly collectible! Is the father and teacher of well-known Hopi carver Arthur Holmes Jr. Both have received recognition for their superb work in kachina carving. Highly sought after by collectors, both Arthur Sr. And his son keep busy producing some of the finest carvings available.
Their work can only be found in the most discriminating collections, galleries and museums around the world. Arthur has a truly unique vision for realistic contemporary kachina carving which he has succesfully passed on to his son. As a Hopi Kachina Carver, Arthur Holmes, Sr. Has often found that the pieces he carves will become what they want to become.Like his son, Arthur Sr. Is a very quiet person who enjoys carving in seclusion. This approach seems fitting since so much of the Kachina tradition involves a reverence for the natural and animal world. This same regard for nature and the spiritual realm is reflected in Arthur's highly detailed and extremely realistic carvings.
