Shawheen was the sister of Ute Indian tribe Cheif Ouray. I imagined her story as I sculpted this life-size figure. She was captured at a warring tribe and released by the U.S Cavelry. Later she helped free captives taken in the Meeker massacre. The title "Reflection" is two fold - her image is reflected in the water she sits beside, and the inner reflection she contemplates.
