For lovers of tradition without compromise. This little olla could have been done any time in past centuries, even though it is brand new. It has the historic attributes of traditional Zuni pottery: the white clay, red and black natural colors, deer with red heart line, and a butterfly design. Deer are prey animals, hunted for meat, and butterflies help to propagate plants, including crops. So this little piece encompasses a lot of good luck, happiness, good health and well-being.The tapered form and beautifully graphic painting style is a characteristic of this artist. Of course, it is entirely handmade, from the clay to the wild spinach-based paint.
