Howard Cook, Eagle Dance

In this idealized commemoration of the American Indians of the Southwest, three figures in the foreground are depicted with chiseled features in slightly varying postures. Behind are the Eagle Dancers portrayed in a stylized sweeping arrangement. A pueblo under a dramatic sky, in the far background echoes and encloses the compositional structure of the print. The medium of woodcut lends itself to the expressive content of the subject
