Both a biography and a critical study, this book is the first to present Naminghas dazzling paintings and sensuous bronze sculptures inspired by the cultural symbols and landscape of the desert Southwest.Thomas Hoving, former director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examines Naminghas Hopi heritage (his great-grandmother was a legendary Hopi potter) and his childhood on a reservation in Arizona, and explains their influence on his art.

The 120 stunning illustrations, including 80 full-color plates -- ranging from the powerful Kachina series of paintings to a monumental bronze for the New Mexico state capitol -- convey the stark imagery and timelessness of the works of this gifted, original, and important Pueblo artist.
