Mapoo is the Indian name of the prize winning Isleta Publo artist, Gertie Sanchez. Isleta Pueblo is just south of Albuquerque. The dish shaped clay ornament has a white micaceous slip, so there is a natural glitter to the ornament. The painting is perfectly lovely, and all the central designs are different, and all are traditional to the pueblo culture.
