Native American Navajo Fine Etched Horsehair Pot with Turtles by Velcita Whitegoat.
This beautiful fine etched horsehair pot has many Turtles etched all around the shoulder. The turtle represents water, long life and fertility. Turtles are known for their long lives & calm demeanor. Turtles also represent wisdom & perseverance. This beautifully etched pot measures 7 inches tall x 9.5 inches in diameter.
Ceramic pottery is beautiful and collectible. Because the potter does not hand build each pot, instead opting for a pot that comes from a mold, there is more time to spend on the etching and painting. Etching and painting techniques have improved over time and the cost of this type of pottery is less than hand built or hand coiled pots.
