Picture 2 I've always loved the pair of native American statues that Frank Lloyd Wright designed in 1924.

But I'm taken with the glossy black glazed ceramic versions that Wright had made back in the 1920s and now only exist in private/museum collections. The supple "Nakoma" figure at left is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in the UK.
