Tafoya, Camilio & Joseph Lonewolf – Seedpot with Realistic Deer (1995)
This seedpot was made by Camilio Tafoya but not finished before he passed away in 1995. Joseph finished a group of his pieces that are easily recognizable. The shape is definitley Camilio’s and the intricacy of the design is Joseph’s. As well, on these pieces, check out the bottom numbering system and at the end of the number is “JL” for “Joseph Lonewolf. The deer are all very intricately etched. There is a large buck with antlers extending over the top of the seedpot. On the opposite side, there is another deer with smaller antlers and two does. The deer are very intricately designed and they are much closer in style to those of Joseph. The piece is signed, “”Sunflower” and has the numbering at the bottom. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
