                           TESTAMENT OF THE OWNER/DIRECTOR, JOSEPH SISNEROS
The wonderful thing about Native American Works of Art are that they remain culturally and  historically tangible, and Timeless in any kind of economic situation.. Good or Less Good, Such as what we are experiencing in the world today. Investments may have depreciated but if they are tangible such as land and art, then those that have can at least enjoy their  attributes of physical beauty and intrinsic historic value, until a time when one may want to let them go to another to enjoy and preserve....

I would like to extend my appreciation and gratitude to the thousands of patrons who have purchased our beautiful pieces in the collection over the last 22years and have taken part in the preservation of our Native American and Spanish culture through the arts. I have been privileged  to have represented many of the most talented Native American and Spanish artist in the Southwest. Being native myself, with ties to San Ildefonso Pueblo, I've been part of this great cultural industry my whole life.  I was raised in both the restaurant and gallery business since I was 12 years old. I've have been able to share my  passion for  the  native arts with all buyers and educators and anyone who has been able to give their time to listen and share.

My staff and I  have assisted thousands of people over the years. They have become savvy collectors, investors, made up people who are local and live far away. But the most rewarding and important thing is that they all share this great passion of beauty,importance, and value of our cultural art.
.
The Native art is based in over a thousand years of  cultural  execution and time ,especially pottery that results in  over 50% breakage on the average in a potters career.

The over all time of production can take months and months before completion.

Our Native Art has the same great importance in value as  all fine art and national treasures do. We have masterpieces and national treasures of great beauty and importance.

Historically the value of Native art has continued to increase in interest and  because of this historic process .
