Nampeyo White-Slipped Polychrome Bowl

Early white-slipped geometric bowl by Nampeyo, c. 1895. This early example of Sikyatki Revival by Nampeyo shows her using early geometric Kayenta designs, as opposed to the bird-influenced curvilinear lines from Sikyatki itself. The design features a large abstracted star or sun and is boldly rendered. The bowl measures 8.75 inches in diameter and 3 inches in height. It is in excellent condition without repair or restoration. One of Nampeyo's recognizable glyphs is painted on the outside of the bowl. I find these early transitional pieces very intriguing. After 1910, her designs become more formulaic as her daughters do more of the painting.
