Large Zuni Polychrome Jar


Large Zuni Water jar made with native clay and hand coiled. The jar is a typical traditional form of rosettes with "deer in the house" motifs represented by water birds in the middle band of the jar. On the top, abstract dagger motifs with crosshatched patterns that represents rain. All Zuni pottery represents the "potter's life line" which is the break in line pattern. The form of Zuni Poly chrome jars were evloved from the Kiapkwa Poly chrome period (one of 9 Ashiwi villages). The two primary differences are observed with the puki flexure characteristic and the deep ledge-like pukie flexures are most common on 1900's pottery jars.
