Bowls like this are used in Zuni to hold sacred cornmeal to be used in ceremonies and blessings. Darla Westika made this one with a carrying handle. Hand built using the coil technique Darla used natural mineral pigments to paint Dragonfly and Zuni rain bird designs, both symbols of water. The stepped shape of the bowl represents rain giving clouds. About 5 1/4" tall and 7 1/2" wide. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
