Zuni Polychrome Standing Mother with Baby, c. 1900

$750.00

Historic Zuni pottery figures are rarely seen. This one is a mother with bulging eyes, a red painted face and lovely flowing skirt with mountain and water designs. The baby in a cradle board is an interesting detail and the baby too has a red painted face. The mother’s hands appear in motion as if she’s praying or in song. A fascinating and dramatic figure in perfect condition.
