Metate and Mano

Grand Gulch Wilderness Study Area, UT

A metate holding corn cobs and mano stone used for grinding give visual clues into the life of Ancestral Puebloans. In the canyons of southern Utah, these ancient peoples, or Ancient Ones, invented irrigation to raise corn, beans, and squash - agriculture in an arid land that changed their hunter gatherer lifestyle. To visit these sacred sites and imagine Native American life thousands of years ago is a gift.

Metate and Mano print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
