Navajo Indian Horsehair Rainbow Turtle (36bc230)
This high-quality horsehair pottery turtle is the authentic art of the Navajo Indians. It contains real horsehair that the artists place during the firing process, to decorate the rustic figure.
The artist throws the pieces of horsehair onto the pottery, at just the right time, causing it to stick and melt into the piece. This allows a permanent application of the horsehair to the pottery and creates the exquisite look that collectors enjoy.
This piece also features hand etching to create intriguing patterns; no two are exactly alike. This is perfect for any southwest style, western décor or cabin. It makes a great gift.
Actual piece is shown, measures approximately 4.25" long, 2.5" tall.
