Earth Paints From Mooretown Ridge

Granite takes on hues of red when it's iron content oxidizes.
Basically what you have is rust. The pigments for the paint
that colors this sculpture are ones I gathered from the Sierra
Nevada Mountains.

Lizard Woman is a cousin of Usbuki, the Great White
Lizard who lives in a cave behind Feather Falls.

Mooretown Ridge is part of Concow Maidu Indian
