Nelson Yatsattie: Dolomite, Bobcat

Nelson Yatsattie: Dolomite, Bobcat


Nelson captured the essence of the bobcat, with its sleek body, sharp claws, and piercing eyes, creating a lifelike representation that truly mesmerizes observers. Each groove and line etched into the dolomite surface is deliberate, rendering a sense of movement and dynamism to this static creation. This bobcat carving not only celebrates natural beauty but also represents an important cultural symbol within Native American traditions. It stands as an emblematic representation of spiritual connections between humans and animals. 

Bobcat (Debi): The power of Bobcat (Debi) is independence. While felines are independent in nature, this is epitomized in Bobcat. Its attitude is that fences, barns, and chicken coops are surely meant to keep out others. Their independent nature has caused them to be regarded as pests by farmers and ranchers but that trait is vital to their survival. Unlike most other felines, Bobcats do not have a strong aversion to water. They have been known to jump into water and swim after prey. They are rarely seen, as they hunt at night and they feed on a variety of animals so they can do well just about anywhere. Independent indeed!
