Kachina Leather Hand Tooled Turquoise Painting original vintage ooak
These pictures do not capture the true beauty of this incredible piece of vintage southwest art. A must have for you collectors. You will not see this on other walls.
THIS IS AN ORIGINAL AND ONE OF A KIND. I have had this in my personal collection since it was originally sold in 1988. It is signed and dated. My husband doesn't like southwest and that is the only reason it is leaving our home. These artist are excellent. A husband and wife team that aren't designing any longer because of their health. They are from the Scottsdale, Arizona area. This picture painting is done on leather. It is hand tolled and painted with history from the past. Genuine turquoise stones on the leather pouring from the pot. The original papers are on the back. Measures approx 39 inch BY 23 1/2 inch framed. Just the artwork approx 15 inch BY 29 3/4 inch.
Butterfly girl (Palhik Mana) It is in the butterfly dances that the Hopi love of dancing, pride in children and enjoyment of life is best presented. Held in September, the Mamzrau (Women's Non-Kachina Ceremony) is also know as Basket Dances.
There also is a story about the Anasazi which began in the four corners region: Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.
About the artists: Using age-old leather techniques, a new dimension was created in the art field. The feel and look of leather lends a special touch to designs that are timeless yet becoming unique in a new sense and style. A team effort combining talents of Marie and Roger has created an unusual approach to leather, a contemporary style that has become distinctive and beautiful. Original drawings are the first step. The leather is carved and tooled by Roger, color work is applied by Marie and the finishes complete and seal the leather. Roger and Marie are creating works of art that are shared by a growing number of collectors who appreciate this new and original concept of leather.
