Title: Mythical Bird
Artist: Jerome L. Martinez
The painting titled Mythical Bird is one of the artist favorite images. I was inspired by the Native Peoples of the Northwest Tribes. I thought of this great bird and added hints of the Northwest with very prominent Pueblo motifs. The bird is a combination of different squash blossom designs and is looked over by a cloud design with a lightning bolt emerging. This image represents new life.
I am from San Ildefonso Pueblo, have been painting for over 40 years and I am one of many artistically gifted Great Grandchildren of famed Potter Maria Martinez.
