Cultural Period: Ancestral Puebloan, Atsinna Pueblo (A.D. 1275 – mid-1300s)

Description: The mural in Room 4 of Atsinna Pueblo was discovered during a stabilization inspection following initial excavation of the room. The outer plaster had peeled off the wall, exposing two layers of murals beneath. This picture shows remnants of Mural Fragment 1 (the outer layer), and Mural Fragment 2 (the inner layer). The latter is considered the most elaborate mural known for this period.

Provenience: LA 99 (Atsinna Pueblo), RM 4, East Wall.
