Here is another stunner from Anthony Gchachu. Working with the rich burgundy of the silk he's chosen a gorgeous turquoise color palette for his design detailing. He loves to use a traditional Zuni symbol of a Hummingbird for his Signature Couture work because it has important meaning for him: the Hummingbird is the figure in Zuni mythology that stitches the world whole again after disruptions. It is a powerful agent for cultural preservation, Gchachu's most heartfelt issue. 


In this piece the swirling, branching designs start at the upper left side of the front and expand to blossom in the center back, where we find a wonderful surprise in the figure of a beautiful Macaw perched on the top of the design, it's turquoise and gold plumage matching the rest of the painting. Macaws (Tso'ya in Zuni language) were highly prized animals to many Southwestern Native peoples, and came from Mexico on ancient trade networks. The Zuni people even have a Macaw clan within their tribe, said to represent the summer people of the south.


Wear this lovely piece and you are a beautiful, walking celebration of Zuni culture!
