A beautiful black on black buffalo animal effigy pot hand crafted by the world famous and highly sought after Master Potter Nicolas Ortiz!! I just love Nicolas' work. He is quite famous for his animal effigy designs, and you can easily see why. Just such a wonderful sense of artistry and fun! Nicolas Ortiz is a featured artist in the famous book "The Many Faces of Mata Ortiz". You can read all about him on page number 130. Nicolas first learned the art of pottery from his younger brother Macario Ortiz, who in turn learned the art form from Felix Ortiz... some of the most famous of the potters from the Barrio Porvenir section of Mata Ortiz. No one does animal effigy work like Nicolas! Truly amazing! The piece is signed by the artist.
