White Dove of the Desert

by Kim Wiggins

The Mission San Xavier del Bac, built circa 1783 south of Tucson, Arizona, is affectionately called “The White Dove of the Desert.” This most famous of the missions founded by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino still ministers to the Papago Indians.Wiggins says, “I tried to capture the spirit of the mission by representing Father Kino passing a dove to a Papago Indian boy. The dove represents the peaceful nature of this tribe. Storm clouds swirl above as a reminder of the struggles these gentle people faced. Not only did they battle nature, but the mission became their only refuge against the constant attacks by the fierce Apache Indians.” The mission, home to statues draped in real clothing and brightly painted carvings, is open to the public every day as well as those on pilgrimage.

Only Eve Could Hear the Bird's Love Song

by Cassandra Barney

Listen. Can you hear it? That little tune in the air, a simple reminder to stop and smell the roses—or perhaps, a clue to the meaning of life itself. Each of us are given little gifts, moments that make us see the people, places and experiences which comprise our world in a whole new way. In Cassandra Christensen Barney’s latest limited edition, Eve is experiencing one of those moments. She appears doe-eyed, lost in her own song, as her companions stare at the viewer. Unlike her companions who are engaged with us, the viewers, she is distracted by something more important than how we view her. Cassandra gently reminds us of the importance of being in tune with something greater than how others perceive us.
