$ 1,800.00

This is an oval jar by Daniel Begay.  The jar is coil-built, carved, stone-polished, and traditionally fired. It is carved with an antelope on one side and a horned lizard on the other.  The lizard is surrounded by sand swirls and the antelope by lightning and cloud designs. The piece is deeply carved and fired a glassy black.  Daniel’s combination of both thin and thicker lines enhances the imagery.  His carving style has a beveled appearance to the angle of the cuts into the clay.  The jar is signed on the bottom, “Daniel Begay”.  It is from 2015 and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
