Here's a more lyrical work by artist David Naranjo than his typical bold symmetric adaptations of his native Puebloan designs. In simple white on black Shantung silk, he's hand painted a concentric composition of a floral motif with a large butterfly on the lower front left and a smaller one on the upper back right, creating a beautiful design in-the-round on this piece. 
The simple black and white can be dressed down over a long sleeved white tee and your favorite skinny jeans for more casual daytime wear. Or, work from the shimmery silver silk lining and dress up over basic black with bold silver jewelry. Either way it's an eye-catching look that makes an impression!

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.”
