Artist David Naranjo is a master at adapting his native Puebloan iconography to the Singular art coat medium. With this exquisite new piece he's painted vertical design panels along each side of the front opening, with a different but similarly shaped motif centered vertically on the back. It's a flattering, body-lengthening line. You can see the bird motifs of the parrot symbol, a traditionally greatly valued animal traded by Puebloan peoples from regions farther south in Mexico by wandering "Kokopelli" figures. The design is not perfectly symmetric however, and closer inspection reveals the eye of the bird on one side of the front, and varying sized swirling tail designs on the back, adding a level of beauty and intrigue to the overall look.
The simple black paint on the rich lilac silk, with royal purple silk lining makes a stunning combination. And Naranjo's oversized and stylized Native designs are handled so that they look at home in either Santa Fe or New York City.
Imagine yourself stepping out of a cab at an elegant opening in this incredible piece over basic black with a contemporary silver necklace... wow!
