Check out the wonderful, swirling, five pointed, flower designs hand painted on this new piece by artist David Naranjo. How does he do it! Painting with muted matte black with his amazing precision rendering his native Puebloan motifs look stunning on the luscious gold silk. He's broken with his typical symmetry with this piece to create an appealing dynamism to the lines, so the eye dances around and across the swirls and spirals. Symmetery or asymmetric, he's proven again he can master just about any design style he puts his mind to!
The shimmery gold silk and silver silk lining make this a knock out look over a slim black top and pant for that very special event or dinner. Watch heads turn when you walk into a room wearing this one.

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.”
