Bowl and Buffalo

Both Bowl and Buffalo? This is heading towards a kitsch New Mexican shot... but was intended as a celebration of the early morning light hitting our fireplace here in Eldorado. This time of the year, it's hard not to rush around at dawn and sunset cooing over the ways in which golden sun rays light everything up, inside and out. The bowl is by Dusty Naranjo, from Santa Clara Pueblo - brownware sgraffito, from Indian Market a couple of years ago; the angel's wing is a bulto by Ernie Lujan, a santero from Nambe, and the buffalo... well, the buffalo are little plastic buffs, relatives of my plastic horses - but smaller - whom I adopted from the site store in the Badlands National Park, SD. I spent some time trying to line them up (without success, however), so that the edge of the chimney breast would look like some huge Anasazi ruin.
