Description
The exterior of this bowl probably has a spirit line around the rim and at the bottom. Between these is a variant of the Zuni lotemla wohanapa (all different kinds of feathers hang down) motif.

The rim of the interior of the bowl is decorated with a band of crescents, perhaps an adaptation of the Zuni wetolianne (zigzag) band that here would represent alialaye (waves). Beneath this is a spirit line, and rest of the interior of the bowl is decorated with one of the many Zuni rain bird motifs.
