Navasie, Marianne – Water Jar with Bird Designs (1990s)
Marianne Navasie was a daughter of Joy “Frog Woman” Navasie and a granddaughter of Paqua Naha. This large water jar is polished white and painted with bee-weed and red clay slip. The jar has a series of stylized bird and bird wing designs above and below the shoulder. It is a complicated design. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair with some areas of fugitive black. It is signed on the bottom with a frog hallmark and an M and a tadpole.
