"Blue Corn Tassle" Art Coat by David Naranjo

The lovely periwinkle blue silk inspired artist Naranjo to use Puebloan symbols of corn stalks, reflecting the sacred blue corn of Southwest Native peoples. He painted two "stalks" in the center of the back and, down the front, spanning the opening of the coat, while adding two smaller "stalks" on each sleeve. These design columns are flanked by repeated mountain symbols, against which the corn grows. The strong symmetry and vertical lines of the composition are lengthening and flattering to the wearer, while the gorgeous beautiful pale blue color can be worn year round.

Imagine this gorgeous piece over basic black: leggings and ballet flats or dressy pants and heels, at all works.

David Naranjo's Bio

Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico

“I am a contemporary Puebloan artist and a 2018 graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, working in multiple media to depict cultural symbolism through pottery designs and fine geometrical linear work.”

“My inspiration comes from learning the Tewa language of my Pueblo. While learning the language, I obtained a deeper understanding of and connection to our cultural practices and found that a lot can be said with few words because you speak from your heart. I found our way of life to be a form or poetry and seek to show understanding and respect while making art as a form of prayer and ceremony.”

“Puebloan symbols and iconography hold meaning and purpose within our cultural setting. I am creating my own personal narratives and stories using these traditional designs.”
