Bowl made from orange clay. The interior of the bowl is painted with red and black designs. Along one side there is a zig zag line that divides the section into black triangles. Below that is a band of geometric designs in black, and below that there are several parallel feather designs. Scrolling down below that are long, swirling red shapes, possibly representing tail feathers.
