"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Brownish-orange, shoe-shaped jar with rounded base, narrow neck, and flared rim. The body of the vessel consists of three mammiform shapes with nipples in the center so they resemble breasts but they could also represent a type of squash. The ceramic style is Sacasa.
Condition: fair; a section of the rim is broken and missing; there are black fire marks and surface cracks all over the body.
