$ 450.00

This seedpot by Camilio Tafoya is from 1994-5. It is fully polished and fully designed on top.  The seedpot is one with a story, which is typical of much of his later work.  Near the base is the “storyteller” and the rest of the piece is etched with figures and the migration of the Pueblo people. Note the detail in all the figures and the use of various colors of clay slips.  The colors are all added from various clay slips.  Camilio was living with Joseph Lonewolf, his son, at the time he made this.  Joseph would give him the clay slips to use for the colors.  The piece is signed on the bottom “Camilio Sunflower”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
