While Nancy Youngblood is known for her swirl melon bowls and carved pottery, she started out her career making miniatures.  This miniature is from 1979.  It is a classic round jar with a short neck.  The jar is very deeply carved with a water serpent as the design.  The avanyu encircles the entire piece with cloud and wave designs making up the body.  The neck and base are very highly polished.  The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Nancy Youngblood”
