Haungooah, Art Cody – Turtle with Hemis Mana Katsina (1974)
Art Cody Haungooah began making pottery in 1972. He brought his Kiowa heritage and culture to the pottery of Santa Clara Pueblo. This clay turtle is from 1974. It is fully polished and the back is etched with a Hemis Mana katsina. Note the more deeply incised and rounded lines around the katsina figure. It is signed on the bottom on the neck, “Haungooah 2-74”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
