This pair of serigraphs was done around 1960, taken from an ink and water color by the remarkable regional artist Mac Schweitzer (non-Indian).. "Mac" stood for Mary Alice Cox and was the nickname by which this talented artist was known. This is, in my mind, the best representations of the Zuni Shalako ceremony. 43.5 by 16 inches. Currently available unframed.
