Here are some recent reviews:/p>Here are some recent reviews:
"Longtime art dealers and art lovers David Austin Riggs and Darlene Meader Riggs take the reader on a loving journey into the artistry of Zuni fetish carvings. More than 300 lush photographs are accompanied by expert explanations of these tiny treasures. Whether you collect fetish carvings or just love them from afar, this book will provide much enjoyment. A must-have for the serious collector!"
NATIVE PEOPLES MAGAZINE, Nov/Dec, 2009
"The outstanding contribution of ZUNI SPIRITS is the larger than life size of the photos. Fetishes are hard to capture because they are small, shiny and depth of field is necessary to show detail. This book has full page photographs of many of the pieces. It also shows many fetishes from several angles, something nobody has done before."
GALLUP JOURNEY, January, 2010
Available signed or unsigned in either a hardcover edition (ships to US addresses for $107.) of a soft-cover edition (ships domestically for $73.00). If you would like to order either book, just email us. Thanks!
And to those of you who have purchased a copy of the book, we invite your feedback at this link. Please let us know what you think about ZUNI SPIRITS: A Portfolio of Fine Zuni Fetish Carvings.
If you're curious about the day-to-day happenings of our life here in the woods of East Texas, you might enjoy Darlene's hermit photo-journal. We find inordinate joy in caterpillar whiskers, the beauty of decayed wood and the flight patterns of dragonflies. And don't even get us started on the personalities of our hens! Seriously. Perhaps we should get out more but life here in DRH is just so danged entertaining! Come and see us in Dirt Road Heaven.
