Gift of Eskimo Art, Inc., through Mr. Eugene B. Power (Trustee)
This is a wide-bellied, small pot with slightly concave shoulders. The pot's mouth is slighlty wider than the foot. A black pattern is painted on a white surface: this complex, linear design starts with a very small triangular path and winds around itself again and again like a maze. Mazes meet to form eight-pointed intersecting star pattern.
