Tularosa Black-on-white Bowl

Doesn’t the squared dumbbell-like design framed in black in the center of this bowl (GLC506) look like a scowling face? Identified as a Tularosa Black-on-White dating c.1100-1250AD, this type is sometimes thrown into the Anasazi Group, sometimes the Mogollon. Glued together with only minimal restoration (just touched up along the cracks), the bowl measures just a little over 10 ¾” in diameter. Restored by and from the personal collection of the late Gene Lang of Denver, this superb example of southwestern Indian prehistoric art comes with a small display card, a grapevine ring to set the bowl upon, a release certificate stating that the bowl was legally obtained and is not in violation of any laws, and a biographical sketch of Lang, noted southwestern pot historian, artist, conservator, and collector.
