Fabian Homer is best-known for his fetish carvings but he is also a potter. He made this canteen using Zuni clay and traditional mineral paints. Traditionally there were two sizes of canteens: one for filing and using in the homes and the other for personal use while out in the fields. This one includes several of the beings associated with water: frogs, polliwogs and Kolowisi - the water serpent who represents the water that flows, both seen and unseen (underground).6 by 5 inches. $250.
