Measurements include the base. "There is more to sculpting Native faces than high cheekbones," Star has said. "To do it successfully, you must create a sense of inner character. The piece must have an expression that reflects the way that person thinks of himself, and his place in the universe." Star's sculpture 'Pinto Begay' is a good illustration of this approach. He is a Navajo medicine man bedecked in jewelry he has received in payment for his healing talents. But his posture and stance, with a hint of swagger, remind us that stature has little to do with size. And his gaze radiates the confidence of someone in possession of extraordinary powers.
