2007-13 Jar with Two Birds Fishing

Repeated twice on the vase is an image that appears to be a bird hunting a fish. The design is unusual for several reasons. First, it is uncluttered and without framing lines or design elements—other than the bird and fish. Second, it is narrative, which makes it unique among the Hopi-Tewa pots in the collection. If the design is a fish, such an aquatic image seems improbable at Hopi, but its whimsy appeals to this Bahana collector.
