Original.  Charcoal pencil on Strathmore paper.  Inspiration for this stunning North American Indian drawing was from brilliant 20thC photographer, Edward Curtis.  The style of her hair suggests she is unmarried, but available !  The hair buns are "squash blossoms." The tribes were a vanishing race so with the help of a $75K grant from J.P. Morgan, Curtis amassed a magnificient collection immortalizing this culture.  The Tewas are a linguistic group of the Pueblo American Indians, they speak Tewa and share the Pueblo culture.  If you are a collector of Southwest Art, this would enhance your collection.  Framed and wired and ready to hang in your living room.  I ship with the assurance of FEDEX.
