DescriptionThis small jar is a Zuni form. The band of arcs is, perhaps, symbolic of mountains. A spirit line is directly below this band, and a second possible spirit line encircles the bottom of the jar. Between these are a series of five motifs that are adapted from the Zuni netsikâ (a crook, or drumstick, used in ceremonies).
