Great Hopi BIrd Canteen, Nampeyo, c. 1910
4 3/4"by nampeyo
This small but terrific hopi canteen features a three dimensional bird on its front with a hooked beak. It's clearly modeled after a large Sikyatki canteen in the Field Museum which is quite large. This canteen measures 4 3/4" tall x 4 1/2" in diameter. Unmistakably Nampeyo's work from her mature period, c. 1910.
