The Zuni Pueblo New Year commences with the winter solstice. A new religious cycle begins. In celebration of this transition, an annual religious ceremony of great significance takes place where Sha’lak’o, a sacred being along with his attendant dancers arrive.
"Fall Turkey" is an original acrylic painting #23 from Zuni Pueblo artist Anthony Gchachu's Land Of The Shalako series. Late autumn's vibrant blue, fiery red, green and yellow colors live in a bountiful evergreen and aspen meadow, where two Sha'lak'o make their journey home to Zuni Pueblo for the important doings. Several colorful Turkeys follow closely walking on crunchy fallen leaves. You can almost reach out and touch their downy feathers, especially the large bird that passes by perhaps a rock outcropping or stream, that's represented with bold blue hues. A magnificent composition that vibrates with positive energy and visually pleases because of the beautiful play on light, all to honor the Sha'lak'o. About 20" by 20", hand-stretched canvas that's unframed. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Winter has come to The Land of The Shalako and Anthony Gchachu gives us a peak as a Shalako plays tag and races a nimble mule deer. Using a beautiful cool color pallet Anthony captures the playful motion as the Shalako dodges in and out of the snowy trees the young deer close on its heels. Winter white aspens create graphic bars contrasting with the dark conifers behind. 24" high by 20" wide. Extra shipping charges may apply.
In late November or early December an important religious ceremony takes place in Zuni Pueblo during which the six Shalako, the beloved tweleve foot tall messengers from the Rain Gods, come down from their mountain homes bringing blessings and prayers.
Anthony is a young man with buckets of talent. It would be a shame to miss out on this opportunity to collect his work. Please click here to learn more about Anthony's work.
A quiet stroll through a winter landscape. The peaceful communion of beings is eagerly observed by young ones who are keen to follow in the footsteps. Titled "Follow Papa", the 16" x 20" acrylic on canvas painting sits in a floating canvas frame measuring 17 1/2" wide, 21 1/2" high by 1 7/8" deep. Keeping in the "Winter Solstice" palate of the "Land of The Shalako" series, shades of blue and grey create a cold and shadowy forest still and sparkling with snow. The slow pace of the stag and Shalako give a feeling of harmony and tranquility while the young fawn bring up the rear with fun, excitement and hope. The reverse side of the canvas is signed by artist Anthony Gchachu, dated and titled. Please click here to learn more about Anthony's work.
Dylan Poblano is a wonderfully creative and distinguished artist from Zuni. He studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. His mother is award-winning carver and jeweler Veronica Poblano, while his grandfather was noted artist Leo Poblano (d). His sister is carver and beadworker Jovanna Poblano.
Dylan's latest offering is an original and vibrant acrylic painting titled "Zuni Hotshots". In the postwar era, Native American fire suppression crews started across the United States and Alaska, including Zuni Pueblo. Active to this day, they're called “Hotshot” crews as they work the hottest part of wildfires. They're the most fit, experienced and highly trained.
Chopping wood while perhaps dreaming of his true love, an off duty Zuni Hotshot works away. His Stihl chainsaw is close by, as well as a journal or maybe a buzzing cell phone, and a bagged lunch. The greenery such as the tall pine tree, yucca plant and blooming cactus are amazing. Signed by the artist. About 8" by 10". Extra shipping charges may apply.
A brilliant multi-talented artist, Silvester's aesthetic is contemporary and knows no boundaries, setting him apart from other painters from Zuni Pueblo. Silvester began his creative journey early in life exploring many different mediums. His paintings are abstract in nature and draw on his experiences growing up in the Zuni Pueblo community. These stylized figures are painted with acrylic on masonite and then mounted on wood, about 22" long by 12" high.
