New Mexico School of Mines: “Maiden of the Desert” Sculpture – Socorro NM

Description

Created for the Sandia Prep School in Albuquerque. It has moved back and forth between NMTU and Sandia a couple of times, but now seems permanently situated here. This may not in fact have been a government-funded piece.

Medium: sandstone

New Mexico School of Mines is now known as New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
