This image is from the SOLD OUT series, "The Living Rock". When I first arrived in Aztec, NM in 1992, I was drawn to visit Aztec Ruins in the middle of winter when no one else was around. As I explored the Great Kiva and the maze of small rooms, I felt like I was not alone. Spirits of the ancient Anasazi people who lived there so long ago flooded my consciousness. Native American faces and figures emerge from the rocks of the ruins as I feel their spirits still remain there. I hold the belief as do Native Americans that everything is alive...even the rocks. Geronimo went down in history as a fierce defender of his Apache people. He was finally captured and made a prisoner of the United State, and as such, performed at wild west shows. He died at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma.
