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 unique and incredible designs. This Bear pottery was Navajo hand etched, with fabulous traditional patterns and fascinating Water Wave designs, by artist Vail.
In Native American beliefs, the bear symbolizes physical strength, leadership, and is known as the "first helper".
In Native American beliefs, the water waves design represents continuous life.
