Very fine back-on-white pottery was produced in the Puerco River area of northwestern New Mexico and adjacent Arizona. Many of the designs feature an interplay of angular and curvilinear (usually interlocking scrolls) elements, and the balancing of solid and hatched areas. The design often includes a sharp differentiattion between neck and body banding. Animal forms appear both in stylized and semi-realistic effigy vessels and in sculptured addition to the necks of jars.
