This three-color Cochiti polychrome dough bowl features white slip with black and red painted decoration. The presented motif is a combination of rain and cloud symbolism. There are double black filled triangles capped with scallops and possible leaves sprouting at the end.
The Pueblo of Cochiti, better known as Ko-Tyit, is an aboriginal homeland located in north central New Mexico. As a traditional nation, the Pueblo people maintain their way of life and continue to preserve their identity through the practice of their beliefs, cultivation of land, and inventive artistic expressions such as pottery.
