The Anasazi peoples, who occupied the region where the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah now meet, are best known for their magnificent masonry architecture. The Sikyatki pottery style, from the Little Colorado River region in northeastern Arizona, is characterized by brown, orange, and red painted decoration on a cream or yellow ground. The shoulder of this vessel is decorated with a band of textile-like patterning, and an unusual dragonfly-like ornament encircles the mouth. Orange fire-clouding and patterns scratched into the brown paint add a subtle beauty.
