2000-05 Jar with Complex – Modern Eagle-Tail Design

Object ID:
2000-05

Artist:
Rachel Sahmie Nampeyo

Dimensions:
4.625" h x 5.375" w

Tewa seed pot with contrasting abstract red, black, and yellow ware eagle-feather design, by Rachel Sahmie. This is an extraordinary pot with great visual impact, using a traditional Nampeyo design given a wholly new expression. The design fits the pot beautifully. Like 1999-10 by her sister Jean, this pot manages to be unconventional, traditional, and gorgeous at the same time.

Purchase History:
Purchased on 6/27/00 on eBay from Steve Goodrich. I later bought two other pots from Steve (2003-03 and 2003-04).
