Southwestern Native American ethnographic art original painting of ceremonial headgear

Unsigned oil on canvas, circa 1970's or 1980's, unframed, 28" by 22", the subject a ceremonial dance mask and head wear such as might be seen in use in the course of special events on one of the reservations in Arizona or New Mexico. During the late 1980's I was at Zia Pueblo in New Mexico, and was privileged to watch one of these ceremonies. The work is colorful and includes many classic iconic symbols of the Southwest, such as the thunderbird, the snake, the saguaro cactus, tipi, and possibly sun and rain symbols. This is a decorative work by a talented artist that would nicely complement your Native Americana collection. It is a bit dusty, there's a little foreign matter spattered in center that has been there for a while (but it's lost in the "action") and the work has acquired a bit of pressure dimpling from storage, at the far right and far left edges, but it's really close to those edges and might be largely hidden by framing.
