"Thanksgiving" Oil on canvas 18x24.
This still life has a small Tohono O'Odham basket which my wife's grandmother had in the closet when we got married and a silver kokopelli amulet made by my Hopi/Yaqui friend Agustine Nasewatewa. Agustine "Tino" was my friend through high school and college. He introduced me to Yaqui ceremonies.
I borrowed these Hopi pots and bobcat furs from my friend Les. The blanket and fetish are in my collection.
These objects are all Hopi and in my collection.
Nampeyo was the pueblo potter that "jumpstarted" the modern pueblo potters. The pots are Hopi.
This Tohono O'Odham basket was my wife's grandmothers. She was using it to store stuff in when we got married!
