Description
The vivid, abstract geometry that covers this splendid bird vessel evokes the infinite variety of nature. The artists of the Casas Grandes culture took their inspiration from the world around them but added their own creative flourishes to give it new form and definition. The beauty of their art is that it spans both the visible world and that of the imagination, and makes us see them both. - (PF.1024)
