Vintage Hopi Seed Pot with Hand Painted Lizards

SKU: KH8576

The top of this beautiful older Vintage Hopi Seed Pot with Hand Painted Lizards shows two lizards facing the opening and two facing the bottom of the pot. The lizard symbolizes patience and wisdom for this reptile lives in a very harsh environment and knows where to find water and when to seek out shade from the glaring desert sun.

My potter Sylvia Naha Humphrey (1951-1999) was born into a talented family of artisans and began making pottery in the mid 1960s. She is the granddaughter of Paqua Naha, the original Frog Woman and the daughter of Helen Naha, Feather Woman.

The Hopi have always been outstanding weavers and artisans. They cultivated cotton to make cloth, which they traded with other Indian peoples as far south as Northern Mexico. The Hopi were experts at dyeing and embroidery. They have been refining the art of pottery-making for nearly a thousand years.
