SIO SHALAKO / Daily Painting #937

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

If you would like to own this painting, just send your bid in an email to: farnsworthgallery@newmex.com, or call Thea at 505 982-4561.

Two major shows of my Kachina paintings are currently in the planning stage. Details will be announced here when they are firm. Meanwhile, I'll be working on paintings, drawings and sketches for the shows, and any daily paintings featuring Kachinas will be done with the shows in mind. They are still available for sale, but collectors will be encouraged to make them available for exhibition, as will those already owning Farnsworth Kachinas.

This Sio Shalako doll represents a Hopi Version of the Zuñi Shalako, the Kachina that visits and blesses new and rebuilt homes. There are untold numbers of versions of both Kachinas, and they all seem to share an unusually arresting personality, whether the Hopi or Zuñi version.

I never tire of painting them.
