Tad and Sandy Dale specialize in antique tribal arts with a focus on design aesthetics from the Oceanic, African and American Indian tribes.

They lived in London for many years before opening their Santa Fe gallery in 1987. They have a superb selection of interesting, museum quality tribal art. Shields from Tad's private collection are featured in museum exhibitions and books.
