Photo: Native American Statue at The Center for Well Being

The spa at the Phoenecian Resort is called the Center for Well Being  At the entrance to it is this sculpture of a Native American.

The Phoenecian Resort is located only a few blocks from our house.  My mother usually gies us a gift certificate at at Christmas so we can go there for a spa day.

Years ago there was an article in the newspaper about the art collection at the Phoenecian Resort.  The County tax assessor did not receive a response to a letter requesting an appraisal of their art for person property tax purposes.  So, the County just used the number that the resort advertised in their promotional materials as the value of the art on the property.

After the tax assessor sent the new tax bill, that go the resort's attention and resulted in an appraisal that was a fraction of the bragging in the marketing materials.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  This week we are showing photos of Dublin, Ireland in part to commemorate that tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day.

You and Dave have a lot of expertise in native American art of the Southwest. Mine is, um, pretty limited. (I do have a kachina I bought in Old Orabi years ago.) Still, the sculpture seems commercial to my eye, a white people's Indian. Maybe there is more to know.
