Jug, Liquor Contact Period, Southern New Mexico
JUG, LIQUOR: CONTACT PERIOD, SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO. An intriguing CONTACT PERIOD fired-clay jug from southern New Mexico, dating to around the late 1600s. The jug is a somewhat crudely made vessel incorporating ancient Native American glyph symbols along with aish-style opening/size. Probably used for liquor of some type, this style of artifact shows the blending of cultures. Unfortunately, the subservient Native American culture utilized a square-formish bottle yet decorated it with multiple prehistoric/traditional-origin glyphs along the four sides of the vessel. The contact periodwhen white Europeans met/introduced new technology to indigenous tribesis a fascinating, not well studied period. The collective artifacts from that time period eventually showed changes, but for a while, the indigenous people blended the new with their time-honored traditions.
The artifact has many dings, soil abrasion scratches, and chips. While not truly symmetricalanother fine indicator of vernacular fired-clay makingthis piece definitely has character and inherent attitude of the subservient-dominant culture mix. (The fragile nature of this artifact necessitates double boxing). The item "JUG, LIQUOR CONTACT PERIOD, SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO" is in sale since Saturday, July 02, 2016.
