Santa Fe Indian Market: A chocolate tribute
http://www.santafenewmexican.com/Local%20News/Santa-Fe-Indian-Market-Chocolatey-tribute
Condensed by Native Village

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.
