Additional Details

Gene (Alice Geneva Glasier) Kloss spent several months each year in Taos, drawing, painting, and pulling prints of the pueblo ceremonies she witnessed. In both Song of Creation 1949 and Christmas Eve - Taos Pueblo, you can see the care she takes to convey the rhythm and flow of the dances. But this same rhythm rises through the peaks of the mountains and the rays of moonlight that pierce the shadows and illuminate the scenes. It is almost as if the moon is a candle and this effect captures the essential mystery of the moment.
