Mimbres Design Medallion with 4 rabbit head design
Item: MIM-RAB4

This necklace features a hand painted porcelain cab with a 4 rabbit head design.  The medallion was hand beaded and is backed with black leather.

From around 200 A.D. to about 1150 A.D. a group of farmers lived along the banks of the Mimbres river in southwestern New Mexico.  Near the end of this time around 1000 to 1100 A.D. they began to make the beautiful black and white design pottery which they are known for. This pottery is distinctive in its intricate geometric designs with fine lines and stylized figures of animals, humans and bugs.  After about 1150 A.D. their villages were abandoned and no more of their pottery is found.
