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

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.
