Mata Ortiz Handbuilt and Handetched Pot with Turtles and Roadrunners
Mata Ortiz Handbuilt and Handetched Pot with Turtles and Roadrunners by Eleuterio Pina
This spectacular pot has four medallions with turtle as the focal point surrounded by roadrunners. This piece was created by Mata Ortiz resident Eleuterio Pina. Many Native people believe that we are living on the back of a turtle. The roadrunner's medicine is its running expertise, and not just physically, but the ability to shift into other states of consciousness with ease. Pottery stand included.
16 in. tall in stand x 8.5 in. dia.
