Monochromatic curvilinear elements encircle the pot, with one area incorporating three dots and a triangle. Ruth is the sister of Priscilla (see 1991-05, 1993-03, and 2003-03), Lillian (see 2002-01), Eleanor Lucas (see 2009-23), and Dextra (see 1998-03), but has never made much pottery. Her daughter, Darlene Vigil (see 1988-02, 1989-02) learned pottery from her aunt Dextra.
This is the only pot by Ruth I have seen: not all members of the Nampeyo family are potters. In this Ruth is like her niece, Janelle Lucas (2019-22).
