Old Woman Who Never Dies
Old Woman Who Never Dies
Item: POT-01

Old Woman Who Never Dies , or Cloud Woman, or Our Grandmother.  Many things are attributed to her such as prophecy, healing, and as a source of communal ritual.  This bottle is similar to several that have been found in various mounds around the Central Mississippi Valley.  She belongs to a category of effigies called humpbacks.  As can be seen in the rear view she has a very prominent spine.  She is also what one would consider a mythical character.  She is approximately the same size as similar ancient bottles.  Some were larger some smaller than her.  She comes with a small certificate that tells a bit about this type of pottery and certifies that it was made by a registered Oklahoma Choctaw Artist.

Size: 8 inches tall by 6.75 inches wide

Materials and Techniques: This pot is hand built from terracotta, hand burnished and kiln fired.
