Namingha, Les – “Sunrise, Sunset, Moonrise” Contemporary Seed Jar
6.5"w x 3.75"h
This is a vibrantly painted jar by Les Namingha. It is easiest to consider the designs on the jar starting from the bottom. The base of the jar is a micaceous brown. The top has a yellow half-circle with a cloud swirl inside. Looking down from the top is a full yellow circle representing the setting sun and the opposite is the rising moon. The strips and shapes represent the sky, clouds, and changing shadows throughout the day. There is a simple modernity to the overall composition and design. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Les Namingha 2020”.
