Peynetsa, Anderson – Red Jar with Four Heartline Deer and Clouds
This is a charming smaller Zuni jar by Anderson Peynetsa. The jar has a rounded shape and a short neck. The piece is slipped with clay and polished. Ti is painted with five 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 sprit line, the space in the painting, and a cloud pattern. Anderson has signed the jar on the bottom, “A.Peynetsa”.
