Artist depiction of Patarabuey village scene. Although the houses are somewhat fanciful, the details in the foreground are consistent with ethnohistorical and archeological data. The two women are shown pulverizing mesquite beans. We know that these part-time farmers depended heavily on wild plants and animals. This 1994 painting by artist Feather Radha can be seen in Restaurante Lobby's OK in Ojinaga, Mexico. Courtesy Elsa Socorro Arroyo.
