San Lazaro Polychrome
Pueblo IV. AD 1490 - 1515
This bowl is decorated with a lead-based glaze paint. Glaze-decorated ceramic types are common south of Frijoles Canyon and were made by Keres-speaking groups. This particular style of pottery is commonly found in an area now known as San Lazaro, south of Santa Fe. The designs below the pot's shoulder are often considered to represent birds.
