Description
Whoever created this delightful abstract vessel had an observant eye for nature. A plump- breasted partridge--easily recognizable--is rendered with bold geometric plumage without losing his identity as a bird. The genuine understanding and affection that the potters of Casas Grandes show for animals speaks of a culture well attuned to its environment. - (PF.0890)
