Description: This unusual canteen fits the hand perfectly with a great grip.  The simple and powerful design of dragon flies at the top with 4 birds (two on each side) on the lower half all make for a wonderful piece of art.  Evidence of a repaired crack at the top can be seen in the photos. Otherwise, this piece is in excellent condition.  Reference Francis Harlow’s book The Art of Zuni Pueblo for a detailed look at some other similar and unusual canteens.
