Pueblo IV. AD 1400 - 1550
Pottery pieces with painted decorations were generally used for serving or storage of food. Cooking was usually done in an unpainted style of pottery called corrugated or utility ware. These designs are done in carbon [vegetal] paint, and the figure that appears to have wings may represent a bird or butterfly.
