    As we watched the cowboy boot auction end on ebay today, we started wondering. Where are all the designs based on Indian arts? /smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Here is a picture of two of them to get ya'lls imagination turning over. user posted image

    I totally agree with you Don and Margaret about producing a solid or two displaying Native American Arts and Crafts–the possibilities are endless of what could be made. You came up with some great examples which would not be hard for Victoria & Co. and EL to create and produce. In one way I have been surprised for a long time now something has not been offered. I can't think of a past solid made displaying American Indian culture or art. However, you experts out there please correct me if I am wrong. I figure there would be more than a few collectors in our group who would buy them if available as I know several of you who have every American Western solid ever made by EL (me included). <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    EL people out there…please kindly consider this suggestion. We are trying to work with you and
    this is another example where it would be do-able for all parties involved. This would be something new and different. It would not be a duplication or small variation of a past solid. A blanket or basket could be colorful.

    Great idea Don and Margaret! Oh by the way, I love your avatar setting. It is an honor my horse has finally got to meet your horses! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    I believe the Starshell necklace and the Concho are American Indian design solids. It would be great to see more, and would love to see a totem pole. When I was in Toronto at the Royal Ontario Museum, they have 2 totem poles on display from British Columbia. The totem poles were at leat 2 stories tall and the museum had to cut them in two in order to transport them from BC. They were phenomenal.

    Don & Margaret, your Indian pottery is beautiful. New Mexico is one state I've never visited, but hope to get to Taos someday, but probably would not want to come home. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Thank you so much Martha for the correction concerning Native American designs in EL solids. I appreciate it very much. Its better to have correct information than not and you are correct. Thanks again.

    You are right, Martha, design doesn't get more indian than the concho. We really love that one too. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> It is exactly what you will see for sale on the plaza at Taos on weekends (one of our favorite getaway places). Santa Fe is wonderful also.

    Imagine this basket done in crystals. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />
