Anasazi Chaco Canyon Pottery Bowl
Item Details
Description
Southwestern USA, Four Corners region, Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, area, Pueblo I or Pueblo II (Anasazi) period, ca. 900 to 1030 CE. A truly captivating example of the black-on-white pottery type with diamond and lightning-bolt-shaped motifs decorating a wide interior. Dramatically shaped outlines are filled with arrays of narrow diagonal lines around a prominent circle at the bottom of its basin, perhaps a representation of the sun. Scholars believe that many of these designs were inspired by weather and landscape phenomena in the high desert areas in which the Anasazi-Chaco tribes resided. Size: 9.25" W x 3.5" H (23.5 cm x 8.9 cm)

Pottery of this kind is some of the most important found in the ancient Southwest. The Chaco Project, the major excavations of Chaco Canyon (today a National Historical Park that is well worth a visit), recovered more of this pottery than any other style. Chaco was the center of the ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) culture, a vast city of monumental architecture, including massive stone Great Houses of multiple stories and kivas of all sizes. Roads from Chaco Canyon radiated to outlying settlements for hundreds of miles, and it seems to have been a religious, social, and trade hub for a vast region. Today many Native peoples in the Southwest connect their own histories to Chaco, seeing it as a stop along their sacred migrations.

Provenance: private S.S. collection, Los Angeles, California, USA, acquired November 2011; ex Outwest Ancient Artifacts, ex Jerry Rollins collection
