Haungooah, Art Cody – Seedpot with Dancer and Sun Design (1985)
This is an intricate seedpot by Art Cody Haungooah. It is a later piece from 1985. The seedpot is fully polished red and fully designed. There is a dancer on the top with a shield. On the side, there is a sun face design along with clouds. The piece has white and yellow clay slips applied for additional color, along with a shell hei-shi bead on the face. Art’s work was always a fascinating combination of Pueblo, Kiowa, and other native imagery. He combined a variety of design within the context of his sgraffito imagery. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “A. H. “, inside a fish, which was his 1985 hallmark. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
