Zuni Pueblo Lizard Seed Pot by AA Peynetsa

4 inch tall Zuni Lizard Seed Pot by AA Peynetsa, circa 2009
I like Gregory Schaaf's summary statement from his book  Southern Pueblo Pottery 2,000 Artist Biographies,  "Today, Anderson is among the best contemporary Zuni pottery painters. he is noted for his "precise, flowing lines". He also is an excellent sculptor, applying relief figures as noted onto some of his pottery. His lizard figures seem to walk out of the surface of his pots, reminiscent of European master M.C. Escher. Anderson displays a bold and flowering style. His pottery is often quite innovative."
