In the style of the Native American petroglyphs of the US southwest, is it a man or a monster? He has water symbols surrounding him, long dangly earrings (or wild ears) and horns or hat on his head...what a wonderful base for a coiled basket, perhaps coiled with pine needles?
Clay is very dark on this piece, and glaze is really unusual - it is metallic gray / grey /blackish kind of a gunmetal color.
approx. 3" x 3 1/16" There is some slight upturning on parts of this base
