GOOD FENCES


These two photos show sculptures outside the American Indian Museum.  They were done by Nora Naranjo-Morse, the first American Indian lady to do an outdoor statue in Washington DC.  You can read more about her here.  
They had short fences around them but I thought I could include them in my Good Fences post this week.  We didn't go into the museum this time, as we were on our way to the National Art Gallery.




Thank you for hosting Theresa!

  1. Wow. If I saw those sculptures here I would think 'termite mounds'. The colour and the shape is right. Thanks for the link. Off to explore further.

  5. They are amazing and at first I thought they must be in New Mexico so it was a surprise they are in the middle of Washington DC!

  14. My hubby is proud to say he has a brick in the main hall. We have belonged to this one museum for years. He is a lover of the history of Native Americans. Nice sculptures. genie

  22. They are fascinating! It looks completely different when you see them in context of the urban setting versus the closer shot.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
