DescriptionThis water jar has two bands of split parallelograms, possibly representing lightning, framing a band of leaf motifs with the dots possibly representing raindrops. These elements are all associated with water, either helping to produce it (lightning) or the results of it (seeds and berries). The black-and-white rectangular elements reflect Ancestral Pueblo influence in Acoma pottery making.
