This is an original work
of art, executed in Prismacolor and pencil, by Mestizo artist Amado Pena. Titled Recuerdos Antiquos (Antique Memories), this
work shows the rich colors often seen in Southwestern Native American weavings and pottery. The work is signed by the artist
under the left figure in the image. (Prismacolor is a bright color palette medium similar to oil pastel.)
From a series called "The Mestizo Series".
The work is matted and mounted in a raised manner, giving it the effect of floating
in the frame. The bright red and blue form a brilliant contrast with the black used throughout the image.
