Santa Clara Exquisitely Carved Black Jar by Linda Tafoya-Sanchez - C4111C

Category: Pottery | Posted by Adobe Gallery Team Member | Wed, Aug 15th 2018, 1:29pm

Linda Tafoya Sanchez Pottery C4111CThere isn't a square inch on this jar without design.  Linda Tafoya-Sanchez divided the design concept into five different bands.  Starting from the top of the vessel, the stove-pipe neck is filled with fourteen vertical and parallel polished bars, each separated by a thin matte line.  The next panel of design consists of Greek-keyelements encircling the lower neck. On the shoulder is an Avanyu, or wtaer serpent,wrapped around to the point where the tail meets the mouth, from which a lightning bolt extends.  At the midbody of the jar is a series of Greek-key elements. The final panel, below mid-body, is a series of feathers that extend to the base of the jar. Each of these designs is highly polished to perfection.
