Mimbres Black-on-white Bowl, New Mexico

An extraordinary 13” wide Mimbres Black-on-White bowl (GLC354) dating c.975-1150AD from the Mogollon cultural horizon, the pattern of which, when examined carefully, represents a four-cornered star within a larger four-cornered star. Glued together with restoration primarily in the white bottom area, this stunning prehistoric Indian bowl is from the estate of the late Gene Lang of Denver. Gene…artist, pot historian, and conservator…also did the restoration on this piece. The typical Mimbres ‘kill’ hole in the white area in the bottom of the bowl is partly defined by some of the restored area. This beautiful, decorative ancient work of art comes with a small display card, a grapevine ring to set the bowl upon, a release certificate stating that the bowl is not in violation of any laws, and a short biographical sketch about Gene Lang.
