Description

A great-great-granddaughter of the legendary Nampeyo, this daughter of the late Priscilla Namingha Nampeyo is famous in her own right.

She is noted for her designs, often re-creations of ancient Sityatki patterns – like this parrot canteen – and the precision with which they are executed.

This gem of an effigy pot is beautifully shaped, with a gleaming, burnished finish.

Russet red slip contrasts with the warm beige of the body and the brown/black painted pattern.

The symmetrical design on each side of the body of the piece represent the wings, and also water signs.

In the past, the parrot’s head served as a spout, and the tail as a handle. No more!

This is meant to be decorative re-creation of a canteen, NOT used as one.

The signature is Rachel’s Hopi Corn Clan name, Koo Loo
