A squat, gracefully rounded pot with a mouth that is slightly smaller than the widest circumference of the pot, and a tapered base. The interior is colored white. There is a band of black along the brim. The exterior is decorated with a pattern of alternating squares: brownish-orange squares divided vertically by a white stripe broken by three thin black lines; and white squares divided diagonally with wave-like black shapes.
An example of Pueblo pottery produced in the early twentieth century. It draws on traditional techniques and styles but was probably produced for the booming Native southwestern ceramic market.
A small polished bronze sculpture of a biomorphic form rising gracefully from a small base. Where it contacts the base, the form stands on two leg-like structures. The form rises from there, narrows, then opens up into a wider, more oblong shape at the top.
An early example of Jean (Hans) Arp's interest in biomorphic abstraction. In its attention to basic, generic biomorphic shapes the piece is a kind of study of primordial organic forms, forms suggestive of all manner of life but not representing anything specifically.
