Picture of Arthur Homes Jr. Hopi PuebloArthur Holmes, Jr. (b. ca. 1970 - present) signatureArthur Holmes, Jr., Hopi Pueblo, is a top prize-winning artist whose carvings command the highest prices from collectors.  He grew up watching his father, Arthur Holmes, Sr., carve katsina dolls.  Arthur is a very quiet person who enjoys carving in the outdoors which allows him to feel as one with nature, and he can relax as he creates his masterpiece.  This same regard for nature and the spiritual realm is reflected in Arthur’s highly detailed and extremely realistic carvings.
