Acoma Pueblo Native American Indian Pottery Water Jar #1 - Flo & Lee Vallo
Artist: Flo & Lee Vallo (Acoma Pueblo)
Dimensions: 5 1/4" tall X 13" Wide
Description: Hand coiled 3 section canteen "Water Jar" by Flo & Lee Vallo! A really unusual piece that is nicely made! The shape of this water jar is spectacular and replicates a shape that Lee's great aunt Juana Leno used to make. It has a modified Tularosa design with angles instead of circles! It also has dots on the handles that represents rain drops. The "triple" canteens were also called 'Journey Jars" because they were used for long trips or hikes. Their signature is a depiction of the Church of Acoma San Estevan Mission! Very cool!
