$ 375.00

Sarah Garcia (1928-2015) was born at Laguna Pueblo to Maria Trujillo.  However, she spent her adult life at Acoma Pueblo.  She, along with Jessie Garcia, Lucy M. Lewis, and Marie Z. Chino, was largely responsible for the revival of Anasazi and Tularosa designs on contemporary Acoma vessels.  This jar has sloping sides and is painted with bee-weed (black). The design is a complex pattern of lightning with the rain falling in the background.  It has a very “op-art” style to the imagery, in addition to the obvious Chaco Revival pottery from Acoma. The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “Sarah Garcia”.
