Large Navajo Yei Vase by Kenneth White (#21)

Large Navajo Yei Vase
12" high


Kenneth White has created an unusually large and impressive version of the Navajo Yei vase. Made from native clay and covered in images of male and female gods, sacred corn, and textile patterns, he has captured many of the traditional symbols of Navajo life. The People believe that buried underground are pools of water, held in clay pots, which bubble up to the surface to supply springs and other desert water sources.
