    Ill:
    Dunn, p. 343: "Anthony Da, son of Popovi, has shown decided ability in his introductory appearances in annual shows. He is an individual painter of exceptional inventiveness who employs both fantastic and established characters in his compositions. His color is clear and incredible, his brushlines manipulated in unusual contours of natural forms and conjured patterns." (p. 341)

    Tanner, p. 124 (discussed but not illustrated): "In 1959 Da did an abstract which foreshadowed many such paintings. Against a background of curving lines that emanate from the upper right-hand corner is a great scorpion-like figure surrounded by a half dozen diminutive Mimbres life designs plus a few tracks and a few geometric themes."

    This painting was done while Tony was a student in Silver City, New Mexico, and is an adaptation of designs from Mimbres pottery of that area. It won honorable mention at the 1959 Indian Artists Annual in Santa Fe.
