The Santo Domingo Pueblo is a couple hour drive from Gallup, which means many of the artists from there sell their pieces in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. However, we did get our hands on this beautiful Joseph Coriz storyteller bolo. Just like the Hopi & Zuni Pueblos close to us oral teachings are an important part of Santo Domingo Pueblo life. Joseph makes this overlay storyteller from heavy silver that gives the piece an amazing feel and weight. You will love how he has used a wise turtle to tell his story. Notice the 14k gold highlights in the turtle's eyes and above the flute player. The contrast from mirror shined sterling and oxidized etched background make for a striking design. Hopefully this will not be the last silver we get from this Pueblo.
