DescriptionThe shape of this vessel resembles the leather bags used to hold corn meal. The painted decoration includes dragonflies, rainbows, clouds, feathers (the elongated motifs with downward double points or "half moons" below the double horizontal band), and possibly sun dogs. One interpretation of the overall decoration may be a prayer for a beautiful summer, for which corn meal is a ritual offering at ceremonies.
