Lewis-Garcia, Diane – Seedpot with Mimbres Animals & Cut-Out Flute Player
Diane Lewis is known for her tightly painted miniature pottery. This is one of her very intricately painted seedpots. The top is painted with intricate Mimbres figures, including a butterfly, lizard, quail, grasshopper, deer, and others. Each of the various designs are inspired by the Mimbres pottery of the 1100’s. Separating them are painted Acoma geometric designs with rain, cloud and lightning motifs. Note as well there is a cut-out on the top of the piece in the shape of a flute player, calling all the animals and insects. All the colors are from natural clay slips. It is an exciting modern interpretation of classic Acoma imagery. It is signed on the bottom, “D. Lewis”.
