This beautiful whiteware owl was handcrafted by Acoma Pueblo artist Jacqueline Shutiva.
Whiteware style of pottery were first made in the range of C.E. 950-1150, a period known as "Pueblo II" when potters would scrape the clay coils smooth on the inside of the pot, and then pinch the outside of the coils to create corrugation.
This piece is a fine example of not only Jacqueline's skill as an artist but also her dedication to keeping traditions alive and the importance of honoring the past.
Owl measures 5-1/2" long x 5-3/4" wide and stands 6-1/4" tall. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
