Historically American Indians have been very talented artists in various art forms.
Jason Quigno, a tribal citizen of the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan, is one talented contemporary American Indian artist. A sculptor since his teens, Quigno is an award winning artist who was photographed here as he prepared for his entry in annual ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
With a deadline looming and fine Indiana limestone everywhere, Quigno was busy carving with a power chisel as he worked on The 7 Chief clans of the Anishinabe in September in this photograph. He works out of a closed down factory, turned artist studio building in southwest Grand Rapids.
The intensity on his face shows how his concentration takes a piece of stone and turns it into a fine piece of art.
Here is a link to the original story:

and this is the slideshow of photos from those final days of his creative process:
