Description: 
The Mimbres, the first ancient Southwest people to adopt agriculture, produced exceptional painted pottery at the turn of the first millennium (1000-1150 A.D.). Engaging scenes recording both daily life and mythology from the Mimbres world were realistically rendered on these bowls. On this bowl, a bear grimaces in pain from the deadly precision of a hunter’s arrows.
