Large Contemporary Hopi Canteen by Rachel Sahmie

This large canteen is an excellent traditional piece by contemporary Hopi potter Rachel Sahmie. Rachel Sahmie is the great-great-granddaughter of Nampeyo (1856-1942), the matriarch of modern Hopi pottery. The canteen is hand coiled from native Hopi clay and traditionally pit fired. It features a large image of the Palhik Mana or Butterfly Maiden. It measures 11 1/2" height, 10 1/4" width, and 9 3/4" depth. It is clearly signed with Rachel's signature "Nampeyo Koo Loo." An excellent piece by a major contemporary Native American potter.
