$ 300.00

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 seedpot is polished and painted with bee-weed (black). The design on the top are two Mimbres bees. Each bee is painted facing the opposite direction as if they are flying around the opening in the seedpot.  The piece was traditionally fired so there are color variations on the surface.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom, “S. Garcia”.
