Traditional pottery methods dating back nearly 1,500 years employ labor-intensive practices including digging the clay. Clays gathered from local sources vary in color ranging from yellow to red to black. Different combinations of backgrounds and paint colors are characteristic of each Pueblo. The polychrome (polychrome is a variety of colors) on yellow is distinctly Hopi. Decorations vary from group to group and include weather symbols, animals, kachina, and other things found in nature.
This piece features a Sunface Kachina.
The metal stand is not included.
