Pot measures approximately 8-3/4" tall, 9" wide and is 29-1/2" in circumference (around its widest point).
This stunning style of Navajo art is called horse hair pottery because actual horse hair is added to the pot at just the right moment in the firing process to melt the hairs into the pottery. This Native American pot was hand etched and painted with a buffalo and other traditional designs by Navajo artist Arlene Begay.
The Buffalo is one of the most important animals to the people of the Plains and it is a great symbol to most Native Americans. The Plains Indians had developed life around the buffalo using it in many different ways. It was used for food, tools, shelter, warmth, and weaponry. To some, the Buffalo represents strength, stability, and prosperity.
