Focusing more on design motifs and less on symmetry of form, a Zuni jar often combines lyrical figures with geometric abstractions. This jar depicts a distinctive Zuni design, a painting of a deer with a heart-line: a red arrow of life or breath that extends from its mouth to its chest.

[Gallery label text, 2009]

Provenance
Mr. and Mrs. Harris K. Prior; their gift to the Gallery in 1973
