Hector Gallegos Sr: Superb Urn
Superb Mata Ortiz urn by top Master Potter Hector Gallegos Sr. Every element that adorns this impressive pot, be it a minute square, a stylized solidarity symbol or Native American feathers is painted to perfection. What distinguishes the work of Hector Gallegos, one of the top founding artists of Mata Ortiz, is the perfect form of his pots, its detailed line work, the extraordinary time dedicated to each piece and the mastery of execution. Take a look at the wonderful circular handle of the jar. A very similar pot by Hector is featured in both, The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz, pg.96 and Artes de Mexico pg.70. A museum quality piece!!!
