This is a very fine example of Mexican artistry during the 1950's...a Plate of hand beaten brass, then inlaid on the surface with Turquoise, Lapis, and other semi-precious stones, which were polished to a smooth surface.
Five figures in copper, brass & silver were inlaid in the center, running with Bows & Arrows, somewhat similar to the Native Kokopelli Figures of the Southwest. Most of the familiar depictions of Kokopelli are copied from Hopi art, which in turn is derived from ancient Anasazi glyphs.
The size of this plate is approx. 11" diameter, and is in excellent condition..."Hecho En Mexico" is stamped on the back, along with a slightly incised mark that might be the Artists mark.
