Subject Matter:

This bowl is relatively unadorned but retains the outer impressions of the basket puki on the lower outside surface, though generally potters chose to smooth out these kinds of impressions with rocks or scapers. A puki is a mold and can be a pot or other item such as baskets, plates, bowls or tins, used in Puebloan pottery techniques. 

Physical Description:

Beige bowl, wider at the top, with a rim formed in a braided pattern.
