Pot measures approximately 3-1/4" tall, 4-3/4" wide and is 15-1/2" in circumference (around its widest point).
This beautiful style of Navajo art is called horse hair pottery because actual horse hair is added to the pottery at just the right moment in the firing process to melt the hairs into the pottery, creating stunning and unique designs. This Native American pot is hand etched and hand painted, with outstanding traditional patterns and a Kokopelli design, by Navajo artist Vail. The Wedding Vase is signed by the artist.
The Kokopelli is a common fertility symbol throughout the Southwest. In Native American beliefs, the Kokopelli visits various communities, seducing and impregnating the young women drawn to the tones of his flute playing.
