1994-04 Jar with Bird-Wing Design

The shape of this jar is modern and the design, though a version of the traditional Nampeyo bird-wing/migration design, also has a modern feel since it is starkly placed on the otherwise plain pot. Thus, like “Old Lady” Nampeyo (1993-04), the background becomes part of the design element. Neva (born 1947) is the daughter of Elva and thus granddaughter of Fannie.
