Haungooah, Art Cody- Large “Buffalo Hunt” Bowl (1973)
This large bowl by Art Cody Haungooah is from 1973. It is fully polished and has an etched design on one side. The imagery is a buffalo hunt where the design has been etched into the clay and then “two-toned” to make it black-and sienna. Note the depth and yet the symmetry of the area surrounding the figure. Interestingly, Art left the buffalo black so that it would be in contrast with the sienna of the horse and rider. Art was Kiowa and married to Martha Suazo from Santa Clara and that is where he began to make pottery. The bowl is signed, “Art Cody Haungooah” and it is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
