3.75"w x 2.5"h
Jennifer Tafoya is known for her clay vessels and also her amazing animal figures! This seed jar has a square shape and three different horned lizards on the top. Two of them are catching ants and one is a close up of the head. The ants are wonderfully intricate in design and detail! There is a mica band that is rounded out with the ants crawling across! The top of the jar is the top of the anthill! The larger view of the head is quite amazing in detail! Each scale seems realistic and look at the eye! There are additional Pueblo designs. The bottom has beautifully etched flowers. The highly polished surface is a perfect background to this intricate jar. All the various colors are derived from natural clay slips. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Jennifer Tafoya”.
