Mimbres pottery

DEFINITION

Named for the Mimbres Valley, this was pottery created by Mogollon peoples, an ancient culture on the southern periphery of the Anasazi in what is now the state of Arizona. Mimbres Pottery is commonly decorated with designs of animals and human figures and has large geometric designs. Often the black and white bowls are associated with death and called mortuary bowls because they have a hole in the bottom. Archaelogists think this hole was made after they were fired as a symbolic killing of the object to be buried with a dead person.Source:Native American Art of the Southwest by Linda Eaton
