About a thousand years ago, the peoples of the Mimbres Valley of New Mexico produced many ceramic vessels decorated with sophisticated painted images of birds, animals, and men, and combinations thereof. Done primarily in black on a more-or-less white ground, the Mimbres images are noteworthy for their spontaneity and individuality. No other group of Southwestern peoples decorated ceramic vessels in a similar manner.
