This is a very intricately painted Zia jar with a lid by Elizabeth Medina. She is known for her traditional style of Zia pottery. Each piece is coil built, painted with native clays, and native-fired. This jar has a round shoulder and a short neck. There are four birds on the piece. Each bird is different in color and design of its tails and wings. The red and tan areas are stone polished. The birds are separated by flowers. Below the shoulder, the jar is slipped red. The top of the jar has a lid with a red polished base and a bear on top with a bird and flower as the design. The jar signed on the side “Elizabeth Medina, Zia”.
