Depicted in this image are Native American dancers performing the winter Eagle Dance at Tesuque Pueblo north of Santa Fe, New Mexico in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The eagle is honored and worshipped because it is believed to be the link between heaven and earth.

This woodcut was printed by Pynson Printers in New York City. Impressions were bound in The Colophon: A Book Collector's Quarterly (December 1932). None were signed, only marked in the block with Gustave Baumann's carved initials and his hand-in-heart chop mark.

Seeing things with a fresh eye is a great advantage. While most of us have an itch to be where we are not, some of us that chose to investigate Santa Fe found it a pleasantly colorful place worthy of a second look.
