Peynetsa, Anderson – Jar with Seven Heartline Deer
This is a charming smaller Zuni jar by Anderson Peynetsa. The jar has a wide shape and the classic Zuni indented base from the puki. The jar is the natural color of the clay and polished. It is painted with seven heartline deer. Each deer is very tightly painted and they are stylized with thin legs. The heartlines are painted with a matte red clay. The heartline deer is a classic image in Zuni pottery, with the heart representing the strength and spirit of the animal. The neck of the jar has a spirit line, the space in the painting, and a cloud pattern. It is signed on the bottom, “Anderson Peyentsa 2021”.
