Artist's Description

The Fiestas de Santa Fe is an annual event dating to 1712. It started as a celebration of the recapture of Spanish territory lost to the Native American population during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. In 1924, Santa Fe artist Will Shuster created the first Zozobra for a private fiesta event. Zozobra is based on a Yaqui Indian tradition in which an effigy of Judas is filled with firecrackers and burned. Shuster imagined Zozobra as a vessel to which fiesta-goers could consign all ther bad news and troubles and watch them go up in smoke along with the effigy. After 87 years, the burning of Will Shuster’s Zozobra continues as an annual event held in conjunction with the original Fiesta. It is an elaborate and beautiful pageant that is uniquely New Mexico.
