Resistant to the pressures of fashion, the Zia design vocabulary has changed little in over a hundred years. These decorative compositions often consist of a mix of geometric forms, rainbow bands (shown here encircling the neck), floral designs and references to bird imagery. Note the abstracted feather design repeated within several circles around the jar.
