The eye is part of the series “First Sons and Daughters”. The exaggeration of size and proportion of Eye represents the importance of the senses to the Native American tribes. Living off the land requires one to have elevated senses in order to escape predators, including fellow humans. The size of Eye also represents the idea that both the Native American culture and European cultures were new to each other and were curious about each other’s strange habits and mannerisms. Finally, Eye represents the future of the relationship with the Native Americans. The eye was awarded the “People’s Choice Award” by the Douglas County (CO) Art Encounters in 2014. The eye is a permanent installation in Northglenn, CO
