In the last 28 years we have been going to the reservation (this is the Mesa above )we have become intensely aware and involved in the objects of powerful significance and particularly the animals they are made with purpose and meaning. Each animal is finely carved and gives us animal power guidance.
Every power animal is hand carved and they believe the stone has the animal waiting to be carved just by the feel of it, the spirit of the animal comes when carved and protects the beholder, they choose you. Every piece in Jessie Western is hand made by real Native American Indian Artists.
