Hemispherical bowl with a flattened base. Kiathuthlannd black on Cibola white ware (Puerco-Chaco series), with a rough tan exterior. Symmetrical bands of oblique hatching in a scroll pattern on the interior.

Grey clay, white slip, and black paint

Kiatuthlana black-on-white style. The influence of basketry design is especially evident in the pottery of the Chaco Canyon area of Northwestern New Mexico, one of the centers of Anasazi culture. A characteristic of Chaco painting is the enclosure of areas of line hatching within angular bands, on a ground of chalky white slip.

Kay Koeninger and Joanne M. Mack, "Native American Art from the Permanent Collection" (Claremont: Galleries of the Claremont Colleges, 1979), 59 (illustrated/bw) fig. 146.

A piece of white cloth tape is affixed to the underside of the bowl. The handwritten inscription is barely visible, but it appears to read, "Chaco".
