Tavo Silveira: Superb Black Olla
Impressive stylized macaws olla with base by Mata Ortiz artist Tavo Silveira. Tavo magnificently combined innovative carving and classic painting into this stunning olla. The form and coloring of the black clay are the perfect backgrounds for Tavo’s gorgeous painting featuring bas-relief Kiva steps, lace-like patterns, and stylized macaws. The body of the olla is beautiful and innovative, and the lip of the pot with a painted stylized snake is a beauty. Gorgeous museum piece!
