Navajo Miniature Horsehair Pottery Steer Skull 4" (3bc415)
This is a high quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery.
This unique piece of Indian pottery uses real horse hair during the firing process to create this rustic piece. The artist throws the pieces of horse hair onto the pottery at just the right time to cause it to stick and melt into the piece. This causes a permanent application of the horse hair to the pot and yields the famous look that has become so popular.
Each piece is unique, no two are exactly alike. This unusual piece is in the shape of a steer skull, made with the traditional clay pottery horse hair design. Intricate patterns are then hand etched without the use of patterns or templates. Makes a perfect rustic home accent for southwest decor as well as a special gift.
Measures approximately 3.25" wide, 4" long. Actual skull is shown.
