The Mimbres Culture, which flourished between 1000 and 1150 in southwestern New Mexico, is famous for its excellent and unusual pictorial pottery. Mimbres ceramics were very well made, with a smooth finish and a dense, crisp texture. The pictorial bowls were painted white with black figures that often turned red in firing. Dogs were used in hunting, and those shown here are notable because of the collars on their necks and their long, catlike tail.
