Virgil & Bertha Wood

Koshares: clowns or tricksters, powerful enforcers who entertain a crowd.

Virgil Wood is a Navajo Folk Artist who does a great job at making these cottonwood koshares come to life. There is an amazing amount of detail in each character he comes up with, from tiny pencils on a teacher's desk to wire-rimmed glasses in an eye doctor's hand. Bertha Wood, his wife, also helps create these comical characters. Take a close look to see the humor and be entertained yourself!
