Moth Mask was created with traditional Pueblo Indian (Tewa) designs in mind. The colors are keeping with tradition as red oxides; browns and tan colors were used often due their plentiful abundance in nature. Deco design was also an inspiration for this piece. You can see the deco influence in the clouds and mesa designs in the foreground. The Moth Mask in the center of the piece is geometrical and influenced by pottery design from San Ildefonso Pueblo located in northern New Mexico. To many people the moth is a labeled as a nuisance but in many cultures the many varieties, colors and shapes are revered and a sign of warm summer evenings to come in the high desert of New Mexico.
