Santa Fe Indian
Market: A chocolate tribute
Chocolates in the shape of Pueblo Indian pots were on display Santa Fe's 89th annual Indian Market.
Senor Murphy Candymaker created the edible replicas of 19th-century pots from Acoma, San Ildefonso, Zuni and Kewa (formerly Santo Domingo) pueblos.
"We do a lot of custom molded products for a lot of different places," said Rand Levitt Levitt, owner of Senor Murphy's. "But this is the first time we've done something really quite this expensive and with such meaning."
A box of 4 sold sold for $27. The boxes were decorated with a Pueblo Indian scene by Cochiti painter Mateo Romero.
A percentage of profits goes to SWAIA's education program.
