Jornada Mogollon Gallery

An Jornada Mogollon outline type ceremonial mask was painted on an overhang at Hueco Tanks. Green paint is usually made from the copper mineral malachite which is ground to powder in a bedrock metate and binders such as egg whites or yolks, blood, fish oil or animal fat are added and water or urine is added to extend the mixture. The paint may be applied with the fingers or yucca brushes.
