Offered in this lot is an exceptional original water color by Zia Pueblo artist, Marcellus Medina (b. 1954-). He was born into a family of famous Zia potters and his mother was Sofia Medina. Marcellus is a self-taught painter and his wife, Elizabeth, (famous for her pottery) often makes a pot while Marcellus paints the design on it, in addition to his own artwork. Very little of Medina's work is on the market and is highly sought after by collectors. This painting is of a Buffalo Hunt dancer. In this series of paintings, Medina did each dancer from the front and a smaller view from the back. The painting is marked in the lower right corner with Marcellus Medina's hallmark. The painting is professionally double matted and framed in a smooth wood frame with rounded edges. There are a few minor marks to the paper pre framing, but overall this original painting is in good condition. The shown art measures 15 1/2" x 11 1/2" and the frame is 20 3/4" x 16 3/4".
