This piece has a special positive charge to it that draws one to really think about what this is about. As with other Lincoln Fox pieces, it grabbed me and I could not get it out of mind, it had a great impact on me. When I received it, I noted that the angel had a very nice patina to it, where a good number of people had touched it over the years. It is a very spiritual piece indeed.

I asked Lincoln about the piece, and his response follow:

"Good evening Dennis,

Great to hear from you again.

I have always been driven to understand and know more of the true reasons behind all of our actions…what motivates and moves us, and the effects of our beliefs on our individual reality.

"Passing of The Medicine Man" depicts a shaman making his transition into his new world. Most cultures have their own unique explanation of what happens after 'death'…yet modern science still seems incapable of even determining the exact point when the life we consciously experience begins or ends.

The shaman, whether North American Indian, or any other culture around the world knows that life simply IS and it can never start or stop. Through personal experience they know the power of the mind and it's concepts. They know that one's belief is one's reality…independent of accepted tradition or religions.

…So this shaman is consciously receiving his welcome into his next level of life.

Hope this helps Dennis,

Good fortune,


Some background on Lincoln Fox

Biography of Lincoln Fox: After living in New Mexico for over twenty years, Lincoln and his wife, Rachelle, moved to the Western Slope of Colorado in 1990. Orchards, vineyards and ranches surround his studio, in a valley of snow-capped mountains. The area's beauty and tranquility provide inspiration for his creativity.

Lincoln holds two master's degrees, and continues private studies in Europe, the Mediterranean, the Mid-East, and Africa.

He has been honored with one-man shows at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the Kennedy Galleries in New York City, and many museums and galleries across the nation. Lincoln has been a member of the National Sculpture Society in New York since 1982.

Some of his sculpture commissions include a 17' piece for the Albuquerque International Airport; an 18' piece for the Fine Arts Museum of Albuquerque; a 23' piece for a university in Texas; and a 14' piece near Montgomery, Alabama, dedicated by President George Bush.

The Global Family Tree of Life, sanctioned by the United Nations (U.N.E.P.), is four stories tall. The Japanese prefecture of Aishi commissioned a 32-foot study, cast in metal-reinforced F.R.P. to be shown at their international park festival, held in Nagoya, Japan. Lincoln's powerful modeling reveals the "breath of life" in his work.
