This is a highly polished green seedpot by Ray Tafoya.  The seedpot is one of his few green pieces.  The design is a classic Mimbres image of a bird eating fish.  Note the three fish in the bird’s neck!  There are additional traditional Santa Clara designs used throughout the piece.  All the designs are etched into the clay and then highlighted with additional clay slips. The seedpot is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay with his hallmark and the year, 1986.
