This is a wonderful small pottery pot by the artist, Barbara Gonzales, Tahn Moo-Whe, a member of the San Ildefonso Pueblo and great granddaughter of Maria Gonzales, the famous Native American artist.
The small black ware pottery jar has the traditional Avanyu (water serpent) etched into the vessel wall with a turquoise cab for the eye. Extremely fine crossed lines form a background for the Avanyu. The Avanyu is highlighted with sienna coloration. This is a beautiful pot from an extremely accomplished artist. The pot measures approximately 3" in diameter and 2 1/2" tall.
In good vintage condition with some fine scratches on the pot and over the artist's signature.
