Virgin of Guadalupe-By Pete Tafoya Taos, NM May 1992

Published by


The Virgin of Guadalupe is revered in Hispanic New Mexico and the greater Southwest. When living in California, she once came to me in a dream to warn me about a boyfriend—if only I’d listened! I met Pete Tafoya, a furniture maker, while purchasing objects for an educational activity at the Smithsonian. He made us a traditional chair—one vara high x one vara wide. He sent this to me as a gift in honor of the opening of our quincentenary exhibit and hands-on education space.
