Daily Postcard: Native American Pottery Replica On N.M. 4

Daily Postcard: One of six large Native American pottery replicas installed four years ago in May 2016 along the N.M. 4 corridor through White Rock. First suggested by the White Rock Master Plan Implementation Committee when the White Rock Visitor Center was still under construction, the project concept involves a historical progression of pottery styles associated with San Ildefonso Pueblo, from prehistoric to contemporary. A group of San Ildefonso artists, descendants of the original inhabitants of the Pajarito Plateau, selected authentic ancestral designs and painted them on the replicas. The pieces range in size from 4-feet tall to an 8-foot diameter plate in the style of Maria Martinez, and are distributed along both sides of N.M. 4. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com
