Effigy Spotted Duck

1100 AD - 1300 AD

This piece is a miniature reproduction of a Mesa Verde Black-on-White bird effigy housed in the Chapin Mesa Archaeological Museum in Mesa Verde National Park.  The name has been applied to these Ancient Puebloan jars because of their bird-like form. Some bear a striking resemblance to certain kinds of birds, such as ducks and doves. The function of these vessels is still unknown.

Approximately 4" x 2.75" x 1.75".  Handcrafted by Designs by Anna in Durango, Colorado.
