Chocolate Indian art

Artist's chocolate masks a sweet dealIf you don't have thousands of dollars to buy artwork from the Roxanne Swentzell Gallery at the Tower Gallery in Pojoaque Pueblo, you can buy Roxy's Chocolates, which are masks made of chocolate.

Roxy's Chocolates are the newest creation of the famed Santa Clara Pueblo artist and are going for $15 each or $25 for two. Swentzell has been selling them since September and is already behind in orders.

"She started making them in our kitchen at home in September," Tim Star, Swentzell's husband, said. "The only problem is they're so beautiful no one wants to eat them."
