This is a silkscreen print depicting a coyote figure dressed as a Koshare clown in a black and white striped outfit holding a watermelon. He is wearing a black breechcloth and a necklace of cedar sprigs. In the background are Pueblo homes. The coyote pictured is named "Coyote," and was Fonseca's alter ego and the oft-repeated iconic character of his career. Edition 32/75
