Pueblo Revolt 1680/2180 Storage Jar

This large storage jar captures Ortiz’s story of the Pueblo Revolt 1680/2180. The imagery captures Tahu, the Blind Archer, a Runner, and Mopez, the character who morphs between man and bird, all portrayed in a futuristic setting of 2180. The front-facing character is that of Translator, who tells the story of both time periods of the Pueblo Revolt.  It is an intricately painted jar and impressive in size – an exceptional body of work that continues to tell the story of the resilience of the Pueblo people. The use of negative space and the cream-colored clay slip as a background adds to the intensity of the black designs which are painted from the wild spinach plant.  There is a space on the rim of the neck where it is unpainted, this is the “spirit line”; which allows spirits to enter and exit the form.
