Climb of the Black Eyes
29" H x 11" W x 9" D
ED 8 - 2015 - Bronze
The Black Eyes or the "Chiffoneti" are the sacred clowns of the Taos pueblo. Each San Geronimo feast day they climb a greased pole to try to reach the rewards at the top, which include a freshly sacrificed lamb, a bag of melons and other treats. They entertain the crowds with their antics. I thought a cut out of this event would make an interesting composition.
