Anasazi Chaco Black on White Pottery Pitcher
Item Details
Description
Native American, Southwestern USA, Four Corners region, found near Sanders, Arizona, Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) period, ca. 1150 to 1250 CE. A rare intact, large pottery pitcher, painted in the style most commonly excavated at the great Anasazi city of Chaco Canyon. A handle with a serpent-like motif rises from the shoulder to the rim; the wide neck rises upward from the body of the vessel. Thin white slip coats the surface, which has been decorated with black pigment in a pattern of vertical lines and zigzags that look like lightning. These painted designs are very well done, with tiny embellishments of short, tight lines and a placement that gives the vessel a pleasing, regular design. Size: 5.5" W x 7.25" H (14 cm x 18.4 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 monumental kivas. Roads from Chaco Canyon radiated to outlying settlements for hundreds of miles because it was a religious, social, and economic 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 New Jersey, USA collection, purchased in 2014; ex-Mark Brady collection, found at Witches Wells Ranch, Sanders, Arizona, USA
