ANIMAL EFFIGY
ANIMAL EFFIGY
TitleANIMAL EFFIGY
Case Location0023
Cultural AffiliationAcoma
Date of Manufactureca. 1870-1880
DescriptionThis animal effigy, or representational image, has a turtle-like head, but the body has painted feather motifs. The top of the head has a four world quarter motif, and the neck has two painted necklaces, one orange, the other black; the latter has a painted cross and triangle pendant. Animal effigies have been made by the Pueblos since ancient times, so this fits with a Pre-contact period (meaning AD 1539 in the American Southwest) tradition, but it might have been produced for the commercial market that was already present in the mid-late 1800s.
