Coop Cooprider, Diego Voci Historian since 1973, recently acquired the above “Indianer” from a couple in Texas for $300 including shipping. Brenda and Ralph Zweigle of lotathings.com came across this Diego #discovery in a #Goodwill store for $6.99! Not the first time the DVP has heard such stories! Do you recall the 97 cent buy? https://www.artifactcollectors.com/hot-buys-diego-voci-paintings-562.html
Coop bought the “Indianer” as a gift for one of Coop and Patti’s Native American son-in-laws. Why is this significant? In 1973, Diego and his wife Helga on their 1st trip to the US included a Southwest destination. While there they traveled to several pueblos including Taos and Santa Fe. Diego rendered many a #Native-American from memory.
Gabrielle, one of 6 daughters to Coop and Patti, raised two very talented, smart and very attractive children: Shane, 25, and Aliah, 21.
