Calvin is one of my favorite “canteen” creators. Hand coiled, like all his work it is eggshell thin. It is painted with bee-weed and also red slip is used. Calvin explains, “The water canteen is a prayer for prosperity with the colorful birds and rain birds and prayer feathers.” The painting is amazingly precise. The two clay bodies (Hopi and Laguna) give the piece a wood like appearance. It is simply gorgeous. It has a rounded bottom, so it is sitting on a Lucite stand. However, it can be hubg on the wall with its leather strap. It is signed on the bottom, “C Analla Paguate, N Mex Pueblo of Laguna ‘23”.
