Another classic designed miniature for us to enjoy. Here is the deer with the heartline. Deer designs have been documented on Acoma pottery as early as 1880. Acoma potters have expressed that it does have meaning for them. It is said to represent life and it has a spiritual connection to deer and going hunting for deer. The heartline begins at the mouth where breath gives life and points to the soul, or spirit, where faith and inner strength preside. As Franklin describes. “The thunderbird is bringing the rain and moisture for the deer and the wild game for food. It also has the rainbow band on it. “ This band is an undulating stripe that encircles the pot.

3 ½” high by 3 ½” wide
