The Hopi people gave the Tewa refuge on the high mesas in Arizona. It became their permanent home, and it is common to hear the term Hopi-Tewa to refer to these residents. Tewa artist Shirley Benn comes from these Tewa people. Her grandmother Nampeyo was at the center of a Hopi pottery revival and is a very collected artist. That is why Shirley incorporates so much Hopi culture into her art. You will find the Koshari perform in a number of different ceremonies and is always a crowd favorite. This detailed face is completed with the use of shells, turquoise, coral and jet stones.
