Serpent and Bird by Julian Martinez

This tempera on paper painting by Julian Martinez is in La Fonda On the Plaza in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Also known as Pocano (1879–1943),
was a San Ildefonso Pueblo potter, painter, and the patriarch of a family of Native American ceramic artists in the United States.
Martínez married matriarch potter Maria Martinez, and together they had a son Popovi Da, who also potter. 
Maria is considered the preeminent creator of San Ildefonso blackware pottery; however, Julian contributed to her accomplishments.
Their son Popovi Da continued innovating Pueblo ceramic arts; his work has been widely exhibited and collected. — Source: Wikipedia
