These handmade Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Cuff Links were created for the Smithsonian by award-winning Cochiti Pueblo artist Virgil Ortiz. A turkey track—one of Virgil Ortiz’s signature motifs—accents the corner of each rounded rectangle. The clever design of the turkey tracks adorning these Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Cuff Links makes it impossible to tell the front of the foot from the back—implying “no one can track your next move.” Turkey track motifs from old regalia have come to symbolize good luck. Sterling silver. Handmade in the U.S.A. Gift boxed.
These handsome Virgil Ortiz Turkey Track Cuff Links reflects the intensely graphic designs of all of Ortiz’s creations—pottery, fashion, carpets, murals, and now jewelry. Informed by traditional Cochiti motifs—especially as expressed in the pottery of his grandmother and mother who taught him their craft—the designs of Ortiz’s handmade jewelry are adaptations of Cochiti artistic techniques and traditions, which it his mission to help preserve. The work of Ortiz was featured at the Smithsonian in the exhibition Virgil Ortiz: La Renaissance Indigène at our National Museum of the American Indian-New York, The George Gustav Heye Center.
