Yesterday's Arrival

Mata Ortiz Roadrunner Effigy with Dragonfly by Gerardo & Norma Tena, circa 2012 
This marvel of clay art from Mata Ortiz by Gerardo and Norma Tena arrived yesterday.   It measures a mere 4 7/8 inches in height and 4 1/2 inches in length. The roadrunner, meticulously decorated with natural pigments, has a dragonfly in beak.   I eagerly look forward to buying more creations by this great pottery duo whose works are frequent award winners and can be found in museums and traveling exhibitions in Mexico and the USA.
