Cliff Fragua is a Jemez Pueblo sculptor and stone carver. He is a son of Juanita Fragua and the brother of potters BJ Fragua and Glendora Fragua. He is the only Native American sculptor to have a work installed in Statuary Hall of the United States Capitol; it is the second of works representing New Mexico and the 100th and last of these works to be added. The sculpture is of Popé, a great Pueblo Leader during the late 1600s who united the Pueblo people and defeated the Spaniards in what is now New Mexico. Fragua traveled to Blount County, Tennessee to hand-select his Tennessee Pink Marble block from the quarry owned and operated by the Tennessee Marble Company.
