Native American Tigua Pillow Vase -Serpent (nap488)
This is an authentic Native American pottery vase made by hand with natural clay and hand painted with traditional patterns and colors of the Tigua Indians. We had the pleasure of meeting Albert Alvidrez, the former Governor of the Tigua tribe. Albert served as Governor for nine consecutive terms. Albert is also one of only two remaining Tigua potters, his Mother Yolanda being the second.
Both Albert and Yolanda are warm and friendly people with a desire to see their people’s heritage continued. Similar in style to Mata Ortiz pottery, Tigua pottery will be lost if not preserved.
Measures 6" wide, 6.25" tall. Actual piece is shown.
