PITCHER
PITCHER
TitlePITCHER
Case Location0017
Cultural AffiliationAcoma
Date of Manufactureca. 1820-1830
DescriptionThe upper band on this pitcher has split black lightning motifs with possible stylized bird heads (as suggested by the "eye" in each triangle; another interpretation is that it is adapted from the Zuni awelwyan samapoaye [cloud all alone] motif that it closely resembles) with stepped, alternating red and black clouds. The lower band is a series of floral motifs with stylized bird heads. A sprit line frames the bottom of the pitcher. The black-and-white rectangular elements reflect Ancestral Pueblo influence in Acoma pottery making.
