During one of Helmut Federle's several stays in the USA, this recording was made in 1986 on the Navajo Nation Reservation in Arizona, which he had already visited in the early 1970s. Federle is interested in all of American culture, which he approaches in this work with his own distinctive symbolism, spirituality, and closeness to nature. The photograph explores the same type of content found in the 1998 work The Seven Sisters, whose depictions of animals refer to different geographical places and times.

Numerous solo exhibitions have been devoted to HELMUT FEDERLE’s (*1944, Solothurn) artwork. In 1997 he designed the Swiss Pavilion for the Venice Biennial. From 1999 to 2007 he was a professor at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. He divides his time between Vienna and Camaiore, Italy.
