Magnificent Mata Ortiz urn by top Master Potter Hector Gallegos. Every element that adorns this beautiful pot, be it a minute square, a stylized Macaw or Native American feather symbol is painted to perfection.
What distinguishes the work of Hector Gallegos is the perfect form of his pots, its detailed line work, the extraordinary time dedicated to each piece and the mastery of execution.
A very similar pot by Hector is featured in both, The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz , pg.96 and Artes de Mexico pg.70.
