Anasazi storage jar

A beautiful artifact of the ancient Anasazi Pueblo civilization, which flourished in what is now Arizona and New Mexico. I love the vibrancy and detail with which this is painted—would that my current storage vessels revealed such individual craft and care.


Storage jar, ceramic “White Mountain Red Ware,” Anasazi culture, c.1125–1200, collection of the Dallas Museum of Art
