Tafoya, Camilio – Seedpot with Big Horn Sheep and Quail (1991)
This highly detailed seedpot by Camilio Tafoya is from 1991. It is fully polished and fully designed. There is a quail and rainbow on one side and the head of a Big Horn Sheep on the other. Camilio’s style is a balance of both realism and Pueblo two-dimensional art. There are additional colors of white and blue. 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 Tafoya”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
