Polychrome Pottery Vessel
Casa Grande Culture
Southern Arizona
13th century.

“Casas Grandes vessels rank high among those of the ancient Americas by virtue of their graphic inventiveness and distinctive iconography…No other ceramic art of the pre-Columbian world so masterfully succeeded in achieving a cohesive visual integration of such surprisingly varied components,”
The most common Casas Grandes vessel shape is a globular, tapered jar. Macaw heads and plumed serpents are favorite motifs. Elaborate vessels sometimes depict a human figure wearing a macaw headdress and costume, or being transformed into macaw, a kind of parrot indigenous to the Americas. Among geometric devices, the zigzag band is another Casas Grandes signature.”
