A feathered Zuni Sunface rises to protect and bring harmony to Zuni Pueblo and beyond. Bread baking ovens called "hornos", drying Corn
, pottery jars and ladders are seen among the tiers of the pueblo. This exquisite composition was intricately burnt out, accomplished with the pyrogravure art technique which involves burning a design on a surface such as wood, with a heated object. The name pyrogravure comes from the Greek words pur
meaning "writing with fire". A flowing circular border is bright with bold red, blue, white, purple and other lovely acrylic paints. At approximately 7" in diameter and 3/4" to 1 1/4" thick, a metal hook fixture is attached to this extraordinary pine woodwork to facilitate a wall-hanging if desired.
