Nicolas Ortiz: Sapphire Turtle

Striking turtle effigy by Nicolas Ortiz. The delicate graphite figure with blue shapphire painting is just beautiful! Nicolas is not only a talented potter but an outstanding sculptor. His exceptional talent explains his long waiting list for turtles, rabbits, javelins....
A very similar turtle by Nicolas is prominently featured in The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz.

Origin: Mata Ortiz
