Regular readers of Tribal Artery will remember that Wilson is one of the Romero brothers who carve animals in a certain natural style. They carve creatures from large stones and rocks found on the Cochiti Pueblo grounds.
That is one of the things that brings us to Cochiti each year. We were here to purchase some of his most recent carvings. We will be posting them to the blog and the website. In the meantime, you can see some of Wilson's vintage carvings at ZuniLink.com.
As we were wrapping up our purchases from among his most recent works, he added a carving that looked like a large foot print. It was carved from locally collected basalt.
We had a good laugh about his attempt to reflect the lore with a Bigfoot carving. We accepted his gift with appreciation. It will have a special place in our personal collection.
