Native American Earthenware 1200-1400

Measures 8 1/2" L x 42" circumference

Early Caddoan decoration on a prehistoric Southeastern pottery of the Crocket Curviliear design.   Red pigment (hematite) was rubbed into the etchings.  
The Caddo Nation is a confederacy of several Southeastern Native American tribes, who traditionally inhabited much of what is now East Texas, Northern Louisiana and portions of Southern Arkansas and Oklahoma.

I tried to depict the piece of ancient pottery with white thread stitching on black felt, the thread being the etchings that would be done on the clay.

This piece in the Fiber Art Fusion show
