Hopi Pottery

This bowl is very likely of Hopi origin and may date from the mid-1300's. Unfortunately, the reference pictures weren't the best so the top is cut off because it was in the picture as well. I did this one in colored pencils to try to get the most accurate coloration I could. I will probably give this to the Pueblo Grande Museum run by the City of Phoenix. They may just hang it in the office area, but that's OK by me. The crack is not as pronounced in the photo, but the more I looked at it the more I was convinced it was a crack with a couple holes...would need to see the real thing or get much better photos to know for sure.
