Vintage circa 1970s Native American Jemez pueblo pottery figure, man playing drum, by Marie G. (Gachupin) Romero (1927-2007). Worn signature "Marie G. Romero Jemez" on the bottom. This figural pottery piece captures a pueblo man seated on decorated stool, with one leg kneeling behind him, wooden drumstick in right hand, beating the pueblo drum. Figure is 6 inches tall, with a base about 5 by 4 inches.
Marie Romero has won awards for her pottery, including at the Santa Fe Indian Market. An example of her work is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This is a unique example of her work.
NOTE 1: See another pottery figure by Marie Romero, a pueblo woman kneading bread dough, now in our Ruby Lane shop.
NOTE 2: See the arts and crafts of Native American, Inuit, and other ethnic peoples and cultures, now in our Ruby Lane shop. With recent changes to Ruby Lane categories, Native American arts and crafts (and artifacts) no longer have their own category. Where to look or search:
-- the Decorative Arts category
-- the Porcelain and Pottery category, and other categories
-- the "Cultural, Ethnic" category - look beyond the limited "Carvings, Masks" sub-category provided by Ruby Lane - in our shop, the first sub-category we provide will be Native American, Inuit, or other ethnic/cultural peoples from around the world.
