ELMO00000247_D_1.jpg Historic Zuni BowlThumbnailsHeshotauthla Polychrome Bowl
Cultural Period: Historic, Native American

Description: Restored Ashiwi Polychrome bowl (catalog description).

Barbara Mills, Professor and Chair of Anthropology at the University of Arizona, says this bowl has a Zuni feather design on the exterior – perhaps early twenthieth century. Commenting on the catalog provenience of Kawkina, she says the feathers are wrong, and that this is probably a recent replica effort. Red paint is usually earlier, but the design is wrong.

Deborah Huntley, of the Center for Desert Archaeology, identified this bowl as historic Zuni.

Provenience: Kwakina (presumably); see Barbara Mills’ comment above.

Collection: National Park Service, El Morro.
