Haungooah, Art Cody – “The Ancient Ones” (1977)
This is a complex smaller bowl by Art Cody Haungooah. The bowl is fully polished and fired black. It is entitled, “The Ancient Ones”. There is a single medallion which is etched humanized grasshopper along with a stylized grassopper figure. This is one of those pieces where I wish I knew the story of “The Ancient Ones” as Art was masterful as a story teller. The bowl has some deeper carving (the circular lines) along with Art’s classic straffito. The piece is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Haungooah “The Ancient Ones”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
