This painting demonstrates the early influence of Mimbres designs in Tony Da’s paintings with the two Mimbres lizards spiraling out from the center. In the alternating corners are a feather pattern and two Mimbres scorpions.  The addition of turquoise pieces to paintings was one of Da's innovations.  Collection of Jim and Marina Calfee.
