Off the Shoulder Manta Dress and Wrap

Description

"Kha Po Canyon Lands" Santa Clara Pueblo Canyon Lands I am a woman from Santa Clara Pueblo. My tribe has land that reaches deep into the Jemez mountain range in New Mexico. It is a place that has been sacred to me and my people. A place where my ancestral home lies. It is a place that now is gone. Ravaged by several wildfires it burned away, and when the rains came it flooded away. I felt my heart wrench with sadness as our all of our spirit animals died and disappeared. And now, many years later life has returned, healing has occurred and we feel our hearts swell once more with love. A linen hand painted dress under chiffon printed panels depicting jumping deer in the aspens in the high canyonlands. The underskirt is painted with acrylic and fabric paint, embellished with silver beads and completed with a loom woven sash. The wrap is a printed chiffon scarf. This is a couture piece in a size 6-8, please contact artist for exact measurements. Model - Rochelle Jewel Medlock Photography - Gabriella Marks
