Effigy Jar

This is a hooded, red and black human on a buff painted effigy jar with checkerboard on the cheeks, and painted black features. There are patterned indentations along the middle and top of the effigy jar separated by a band of red and black geometric designs. The geometric designs include alternating black and red triangles above and below an interlocking square scroll pattern with lines extending toward this scroll pattern in some areas on the jar. The base of the jar is rounded. This jar is from Chihuahua, Mexico and is a modern interpretation of the Casas Grandes style of pottery.
