One of a kind ! This new asymmetric jar is so uniquely Russell ! The complexity of both the shape and the incised design work makes this such a special piece. It tells a story about the avanyu, the night sky, and explosive universe and the milky way. The very deep red polished curved band with the figure at the top, and the serpent at the bottom creates such movement on this jar. The polished black mica overall tones are set off beautifully by that deep red and the natural tan color of the clay. Russell has imbedded a high grade Red Mountain turquoise surrounded by dots in a circular pattern. The incised panel is bordered with two strands of natural brown and scattered turquoise heishi. What a creative and distinctive creation this is.
