The Indigo Arts website remains active during the widespread shutdown due to the COVID-19 virus.  I will be monitoring orders and responding to inquiries.  I have been shipping out orders but due to the March 23rd "Stay at Home" order in Philadelphia I now have to delay shipments until I can go in to the gallery to pack them - currently about once a week.  Stay tuned!.  Please stay home and stay safe!

The text written on the back of the painting has been translated as follows: 
 "In this painting we can see the symbol when the Gods have communication during the night.  To have knowledge of what they say and this is the way we know the word of the Gods.  If you go to Real de Catorce, San Luis Potosi, where you can find the sacred Gods."
