DescriptionThe proportions of this jar, the everted rim, and the painted motifs indicate that is another Mishongnovi "Eccentric, " though the polychrome motifs are more typical of Hopi ceramics than those on artifact number 97. Below the exterior rim is a zigzag band that resembles and is derived from the Zuni wetolianne. A spirit line encircles the neck, and below this is a band of netsikâ-like (a crook, or drumstick, used in Zuni ceremonies) motifs. The main body of the jar is decorated with motifs that resemble Zuni triangles known as nitep'owa anpatlopa above three zigzag bands (upper) and netsikâ attached to what appears to be a double cloud band (lower). Another spirit line at the bottom of the jar completes the painted motifs.
