Not on view

The Native American ceramic tradition in the Southwest is deep, with many tribes tracing their artistic lineage back to the Anasazi of the Four Corners region, who left behind sizable adobe structures. This jar, most likely used for storage, relates to Hopi and Zuni examples in its use of rich red clay and asymmetrical geometric decoration.
