Biography from the Archives of askART

These Notes represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development.

New Mexico sculptor, Hib Sabin creates masks, spirit sticks, amulets, spirit bowls, and boats, often incorporating creatures such as- wolves, owls, ravens, bears, coyotes, and eagles. The pieces are finished in watercolor and acrylic and then steel wool and sandpaper are incorporated to create an aged quality. Juniper and pinon woods are used most often as they are both native to New Mexico.

He is inspired by Shamanic practices from tribal cultures around the world. The sculptor has traveled across the world studying traditions and cultures, including those of the curanderos in Mexico and tribes in India.
