Lonewolf, Joseph – Jar with Avanyu and Bear Lid (1973)
Joseph Lonewolf began making pottery in 1970-1. His bear lidded vessels, which he only created for a few years, may be among his most iconic in style. This jar is fully polished and etched with a feathered water serpent encircling the piece. The matte area surrounding the avanyu is vertically incised with lines. The lid has a bear with a fetish bundle of turquoise and coral. The base of the bear is also fully etched vertically. It is an exceptional piece in design and form. It is signed on the bottom in the clay. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom in the clay. Definitely a classic of Joseph’s early pottery style!
