Figures of deer, birds and plants have been painted on Zia pots for many years. The deer figures painted during the 19th century were simple and blocky, but they became progressively more naturalistic, culminating in acrylic paintings done by young artists in the mid-20th century. This jar was signed by the great potter Trinidad Medina who made many of the finest pots between 1925 and 1950.
