Acquired from the Collection of Bill Heuter and Jill Kopatich, Colgate, Wisconsin
Diamensions - 4.25" H x 5.5" diameter
Foot - 1.75" diameter
A small red clay handmade bowl with incised Avanyu (serpent and lightning) design, signed by Santa Clara artist, Mida Tafoya of the acclaimed Tafoya family potters.
Typical of the Tafoya pottery is the polished red (or black) exterior and matte deep relief interior. The best pieces have very little tool marking like this one.
The Avanyu, the gaurdian of water, is a common motif among the artists of the Santa Clara Pueblo. Like its Mexican counterpart, Quetzalcoatl, Avanyu “is multifaceted and ambiguous, cosmic in scope, its roles in myth and ritual involving the unpredictable — endings and beginnings, change, transition, and transformation.” In the arid landscape of the Santa Clara it is no wonder the Avanyu is a much thought of deity.
A sturdy and stunning piece of original art with a rich history!
Acquired through an auction of an art collector's estate in Taos, NM. less
