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 sensational traditional patterns along with a charming Kokopelli design, by Navajo artist Vail. The pot 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.
