Acoma Ceramic Sheep Effigies by Jessie Garcia

Offered individually, these two ceramic sheep effigies were made by Jessie Garcia, a well-respected potter at Acoma Pueblo in the 1960-80s. They are made of native clay, traditional paints, and were pit fired out of doors traditionally. They are hollow, being coiled like normal pottery, and the photo of their bases clearly shows the air holes left by the potter so the piece wouldn't explode during firing. They measure 8" in length by 6.5" in height (Left), and 8 1/4" in length by 7" in height (Right), and are in excellent original condition without repair. Each one has a big presence. They are considered rare and because of the work involved, few were produced. Please note that the sheep on the right has sold.

Provenance: Harriet and Seymour Koenig Collection, New York
