This southwestern Native American bowl is from the the region known as Mimbres, named by early Spanish settlers for the many mimbres or willows found along the banks of the Mimbres River. Research on the Mimbres culture has found that women artists created the pottery due to the presence of female burial sites containing pottery-making tools.

Provenance
Found on private land; Robert Nichols Gallery, Santa Fe, NM; purchased from them by Charlene Wilkens Hursh, late 1980s; her gift to the Gallery in 2015
