Aggie’s work is well-known, well-loved, and eagerly collected.
Usually, she charmingly combines children with animals, birds and friendly insects in her work.
This time, she has adapted her delightful style to create Pueblo angel.
Impressively sized, this piece is entirely hand made the traditional way: hand gathered clay, hand mixed, coiled, smoothed, and painted.
Local Acoma clay is the white base, with natural red clay slip for accents, and brewed wild spinach forming the black paint.
All decked out in a long dress, and squash blossom necklace, this enchanting angel has her hands decorously folded in front, while she chants with sweet intensity.
Crisply painted traditional good-luck signs decorate her dress: parallel lines of rainfall, lightning zigzags, and stepped rain and sacred symbols.
A lovely monarch butterfly is comfortably nestled on her formal hairdo, a typical Aggie detail.
Endearing, but imposing in size, this angel will bring her earnest prayers for happiness and prosperity to your home, all year round, with charm and great appeal.
