Haungooah, Art Cody – “Mythical Animals” Seedpot (1976)
This is an unusual seed bowl by Art Cody Haungooah. The piece is etched with two large medallions, which are each different. Each of the “animals” are mythical and combine the attributes of both animals and insects. One side, the figure is a combination of ant and antelope. Note the complex etched geometrics in the background. The opposite side has a combination of beaver, ant, and bison. The background is etched in a vertical manner, which is not only visually interesting but also creates a great texture. The remainder of the piece is fully polished. It is a definitely a strange but interesting piece by Art Cody! The bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Art Haungooah”.
