 The artists of the village of Mata Ortiz have a deep tradition of creating effigies. This figure is a smiling badger. It's hard to tell if his smile is out of friendliness or deviousness. Conjured by one of the most prolific members of the Villalba family dynasty, Señora Lourdes Villalba gives life to these pieces through use of her family's' time-honored traditions of creative techniques. The geometric styles surrounding the body are strong in the Paquime design influences of Ms. Villalbas ancestors a thousand years ago. And the earthen tones are lovely and soft and created from the soil surrounding the landscape of the village of Mata Ortiz. 
A pottery ring for this badger to sit on is included.
