They are angular and extend down from the neck to the shoulder. The body of the jar has two large dragonflies as the design. They are surrounded by cloud, water, and even a pueblo design! The designs are both matte and highly polished. which draws the eye across the surface of the piece. The style of carving has a beveled appearance to the angle of the cuts into the clay. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Daniel Begay”.
