Classically trained all his life, he is truly phenomenal in sand, but also fantastic in drawing and in bronze sculpture. His new line of bronze sculpture is very intriguing and will be BIG on the world market, for sure. A highly decorated competitor in sand, I chose him as my partner for the world Grand Master competition this year (my team is the defending champion) Like my partner Karen last year, he wouldn't have any part of simply exhibiting for pay, so we competed with the rest of the field. We had a blast and created a great piece. Pavel is one fun loving guy. At the tournament of champions he laughed joked, sand and danced as much as most and really left an impression. Pavel will be sculpting a portrait of Mahatma Gandi for Sultans Of Sand next December in Italy, as part of the new "Peacemakers" series attached to the Nativity project.

   The medicine man was not always a male. The primary function of these "medicine elders"  is to act as a liaison and to secure the help of the spirit world, including the Great Spirit (or Wakan Tanka in the language of the Lakota Sioux), for the benefit of the community. Sometimes the help sought can be for the purpose of healing disease, sometimes it can be for the sake of healing the psyche, & sometimes the goal is to promote harmony between human groups or between humans and nature.
