Superb Santa Clara Large Lidded Avanyu Box by Chris Youngblood
This is the largest box, in fact first rectangular box by the 2014 Indian Market Best in Pottery division ribbon. The form is stunning as are the deep polished black Avanyu's set against a silvery black surface; gorgeous. The Avanyu's are of 2 types, arrayed in 2 pairs with Avanyu in lid matching the one below it on the body. Kiva steps on the end complete this operatic performance!
Size 4 1/2″ by 7 3/4″
