Les Namingha, Zuni-Tewa-Hopi
is backordered. We will ship it separately when it becomes available.
Honored master pueblo potter Les Namingha has brought together traditional and contemporary techniques, such as hand-building with Hopi clay and the use of gorgeous acrylic paints to create this collectible "Shalako" pottery jar. Circa 2015, this masterwork features four Shalako. An important religious katsina ceremony takes place once a year at Zuni Pueblo in which Shalako makes an appearance. A beloved messenger from the Rain Gods, Shalako stands ten feet tall.
Don't miss this rare showpiece by Les Namingha, an award-winning creative genius. It's currently featured in an August 2020 advertisement for Keshi, in the "Pasatiempo, Santa Fe New Mexican" publication.
Approximately 12 1/2" tall, 11" long and 11" deep jar. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.

Traditional cottonwood root has been hand-carved and hand-painted with lively acrylic paints, in Tiffany Tsabetsaye's "Red Beard Rain Dancer, Spirit From The Kiva" rain-making katsina doll. Long etched hair represents rainfall and a cloud element nourishes the land with gently falling moisture. Many exquisite details are to be enjoyed in this approximate 9" tall, 3" wide and 3" deep katsina. Measurements include the lovely burnished base. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.

In Zuni Pueblo tradition the Sunface symbol is beneficial as it represents a balance in life: traditionally, turquoise stands for Father Sky, coral stands for Mother Earth, while mother-of-pearl shell and jet represent all the elements in balance. Carvers like Troy Sice use their creative artistic license by utilizing other materials to represent this sacred design.
A burnished antler crown is precisely inlaid with bright red coral, refreshing gaspeite or perhaps variscite, pen shell, gold lip shell and lapis to form the Sunface design. A tiny carved gold lip shell feather is secured with sterling silver to the Sunface. Red coral and turquoise inlays designate a fabulous triple strand necklace.
A robe or blanket is masterfully embellished with many beautiful stones, shells and corals. Troy used sky blue turquoise, lovely pink and red coral, vibrant lapis lazuli, gaspeite, orange spiny oyster shell, serpentine, pen shell and crushed lapis to decorate it. We love how he worked the antler to bring soft folds to the blanket that's wrapped around sweetly rendered hands. Crushed pipestone is meticulously inlaid to the belt or sash that has lapis accents as well. Burnished boots or mocassins are inlaid with turquoise.
A museum quality masterpiece that measures approximately 3 1/2" tall, 1 5/8" wide and 1 1/2" deep.
