"Desert Madonna" is an original hand signed lithograph by R.C. Gorman. Measurements are approximately 10x8, mint condition, unframed. Completes with certificate of authenticity. Inspired first by the graceful landscape of Canyon de Chelly, R.C. Gorman walks and works in beauty. In the Navajo way, beauty is not an abstract standard as seen through the eyes of the beholder. Navajo beauty is that process of becoming or the state of being as one - in flesh and spirit - with the living Earth. This bond between land and people is expressed in the Navajo word Shikeyah or "the land on which we walk." To walk in beauty, then, is to live balance and harmony with Mother Earth and all of her natural creation. To the enlightened, Gorman's art can be seen as both a mirror and window to the abiding world view.
