Subject Matter:

This pot's design is based on the patterns of Anasazi and Mogollon pot shards that are commonly found around the Acoma Pueblo.

Physical Description:

This is a wide-bellied, small pot with slightly concave shoulders. The pot's mouth is slighlty wider than the foot. A black pattern is painted on a white surface: this complex, linear design starts with a very small triangular path and winds around itself again and again like a maze. Mazes meet to form eight-pointed intersecting star pattern.
