Alonzo Esalio was one of the stars in Zuni carving of the first decade of the twenty-first century. After his family grew to include four daughters, Alonzo chose to take a full time position as a lineman for New Mexico Electric and Gas. For about the past several years, he has not been carving, except for a few special occasions. He is thus an inactive carver in our terminology.
We are proud to have saved a few of Alonzo's pieces and offer them to you here.
