Michael NaNaPing Garcia (Pascua Yaqui)
About the Artist
A descendent of the ancient Mayan culture, Mike is internationally known for his elegant, contemporary inlaid jewelry. He is particularly noted for his outstanding artistry in lapidary work. Working in both gold and silver, he selects only the finest and rarest quality natural stones. He is “fascinated with the beauty of color” and his color sense is as exceptional as his workmanship, often surprising us with his use of stones in unexpected ways. Mike has been involved in several organizations that are promoting and protecting authenticity in Native American art and he travels around the world visiting the galleries that represent his work.
