TOHONO O'ODHAM BLACK ON RED HORNED TOAD FIGURINE
This came from a collection gathered in 1916 by Senator William Duncan of Oroville, California, who died in 1936. It has an unusual surface that we've seen on very few Tohono pieces from the period, and its rough charm places it closer to folk art and away from the normally more formally made O'odham or Maricopa pottery. A pleasant little desert creature and a rare piece of pottery. This appears on page 133 of the Second Edition of our Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni and on 157 of our The Desert Southwest, Four Thousand Years of Life and Art.
