"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
-attributed to Chief Seattle of the Native American Suquamish Tribe

Under Amanda Crowe’s chisel, black bears sprang to life from a chunk of wood — rolling, swatting, raising up on their hind legs. To Crowe, a Cherokee carver born in Murphy, blocks of walnut and cherry hid the animals’ powerful backs and playful paws — a canvas that grew from her native mountains.

On Friday, Google honored Crowe’s work through its Google Doodle — a temporary redesign of its home page. Her words scroll across the screen as her animated hands choose a favorite knife.

“I carve because I love to do it,” she explains in a short video. “The movements of the grain, they almost seem alive.”
