Battery Bird

0.00

Santo Domingo Battery Bird from the Kewa Pueblo. These iconic birds where created in the late 1930's as inexpensive tourist souvenirs usually sold for only a few dollars. Oral history labels these types of birds as being made of recycled battery casings or records and the red and white from melted plastic utensils, straws and toothbrushes - though the materials are hard to truly identify. We feel this bird is c.1950's, is strung with natural and silver beads and is very reminiscent of the Fred Harvey thunderbird logo.
