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

Daily Postcard: View Sunday afternoon near the east side of the White Rock Visitor Center of beautiful summer landscaping surrounding one of six large Native American pottery replicas installed in May 2016 along the N.M. 4 corridor through White Rock. First suggested by the White Rock Master Plan Implementation Committee when the visitor center was under construction, the project concept involved 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. Photo by Carol A.

The last piece of the White Rock Pottery Replica project viewed Sunday afternoon is this 10-foot in diameter plate patterned after a Maria Martinez plate, installed Aug. 8, 2016 on the west facing  wall at the White Rock Visitor Center on N.M. 4. This is part of the Los Alamos County Public Art Collection. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com
