The figures in George Carlson’s Hopi Maidens, in their various poses, are individuals, yet at the same time, they seem to be a single maiden represented in facets of activity and introspection. The butterfly, or squash blossom whorls in their hair indicate that they are unmarried, but by sculpting the piece in the round, alternating rough, abstract volumes in their robes with smooth, rounded heads, Carlson transcends his subject matter, offering a portrait of adolescence in all its brooding, manifold guises. The maidens, united in the base of the bronze, are like teens the world over, wondering who they are, and what life has in store for them.
