It was purchased in March of 1988 outside the reservation gift shop at Quijotoa, Arizonia. (As we were coming from the gift shop the artisan was coming to the gift shop to sell what she had just finished. We were fortunate to be able to buy directly from the one who made it. However, we neglected to ask her name.)
