Abstract

The design goal was to create an ensemble that reflected the spirit and cultural heritage of New Mexico. The early Native American inhabitants called Santa Fe the "Dancing Ground of the Sun." The high desert, surrounding the pueblo communities, transitions into foothills and upward to gorgeous mountains covered in early morning mist, with dusty greens, sage and light lavender foliage enveloping the low lying plains of New Mexico. The combination of New Mexico’s topography and Native American culture and symbolism of the region inspired the design and execution of Thunderbird – Sacred Bearer of Happiness Unlimited.
