The “Song to the Patrons” monumental sculpture resided on the corner of Washington and Palace Ave in Santa Fe for over 20 years. It was considered one of the most photographed pieces of art in Santa Fe. Thousands of visitors have touched and posed with the bronze.

Upon the sale of the sculpture to clients in Texas, arrangements were made to have the artist, Bill Worrell, present to oversee the installation of a new piece and “Song to the Patrons” being moved. At 6 am on a snowy morning in mid-January, a small group gathered and photos were taken to capture the event. When the film was developed a beautiful aura appeared in only one photo, the Shaman being hoisted upward with the crane.

Friends had the colors in the image examined and gave this explanation:

  • Purple: spirituality, uneasiness, change.
  • Blue: trust, peace, loyalty.
  • Green: rebirth, spring.
  • White: purity, completeness.

The perfect example of the how powerful and magical Worrell’s work has continued to keep the mystery of the Ancients alive.

We wanted to share this with all the collectors and patrons who have supported art and the artists over the years.
