Description

Give the enchanting gift of New Mexico flavor and style with a Shumakolowa Native Arts exclusive! This unique café-style ceramic mug is a replica of a single beautiful clay pot handcrafted by skilled Santa Clara artist Denise Chavarria.

Chavarria has incorporated very detailed and beautiful carving and burnishing on a traditional red vase. She has carved out a beautiful depiction of the avanyu, a water serpent that the Pueblo people consider to be the guardian of water. Depicted as a horned serpent with lightning emerging from its mouth, the avanyu is believed to live in the Rio Grande and its tributaries. The creature’s body typically looks like a rippling stream, and the lightning coming from its mouth signifies thunderstorms that bring rain. A common design in the pottery of Santa Clara and San Ildefonso Pueblos, the avanyu represents the importance of water for the Pueblo people.  

A 4 oz bag of Red Rock Roasters Piñon Coffee adds the unique flavor of the high desert to complete this memorable gift set.
