Hopi Polychrome Dish by Nampeyo, c.1895-1900 updated
This superb example shows Nampeyo developing one of her original designs, the spirit bird. On this piece, Nampeyo has combined several of her famous design elements into an original abstract design: eagle tail feathers, the bear claw/migration design, and the spirit bird. This version of her abstract bird sports eagle tail feathers and a linear design on the bird’s face, which references the migration or bear claw variation below it. The piece has holes at the top for hanging on a wall. The dish measures 1” height and 6” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition with one minor rim chip repair. Complimentary shipping included.
