Johona Mai - A Glass Mosaic Matryoshka
Johona-Mai, Navajo for Sunny Bright Flower was named to honor the Navajo Nation who's ancestral land we inhabit. She was created in Alamosa, Colorado - the land of 'Cool Sunshine'. To reflect our region, we incorporated Southwestern colors, focusing on the bright blue of our big, clear sky and the warm yellow of the ever present sunshine in the San Luis Valley.
Johona Mai, stained glass mosaic sculpture, 4ft tall by 22"wide/deep, 2017 by Kasia Polkowska and Kyle Cunniff ~Available for Sale via the City of Alamosa: http://cityofalamosa.org/public-art/
sculpted by hand and is adorned in a modern, colorful, hand cut
stained glass mosaic pattern. Her form originates from Russia, where
the first Matryoshka Doll was made and has since become
a symbol in Eastern European Culture where Kasia was born. Today the
doll has a place in contemporary pop culture around the world. The form
of our doll was kept traditional to inspire the nostalgia one often
feels when laying eyes on a nesting doll. The decorative motif
highlights the purity of the form with color, pattern and the innocence
of a flower often present on traditional dolls but with a contemporary
Johona Mai set up in Alamosa, among the sagebrush, surrounded by the Sangre De Cristo Mountains
