Description:

This hand-etched Horsehair Wolfs' Head is authentic Navajo handcrafted greenware by artist Marshalene Bennett. To Native Americans, Wolfs represent loyalty, strong family ties, good communication, education, understanding and intelligence. Of all land animals, the Wolf has the strongest supernatural powers and is the most accomplished hunter.

During the firing process is when they add the horsehair and re-fire the pot allowing the hair to burn a unique pattern into the pottery. Why? For Native Americans, the horse symbolized Mobility, Prosperity, and Power. This particular piece features hand-etched  Navajo symbols design etched on the piece. This genuine Navajo-crafted pottery is signed on the bottom by the Artist.
