"When I was young, my grandfather made a pile of sand, put rocks on it, and made it look like a carving.  He told me, 'You should make carvings like this with stone because in the future white people will come by and talk about it.  They will ask questions about you.'  So I started because my grandfather told me to carve the shapes from that pile of sand."
