This four-color Acoma polychrome storage jar features white slip with black, red, and orange painted decoration. The design consists of two bands of decoration. The neck has a remarkable checkerboard pattern. The clean lines of the upper design are colored squares that are both red and orange. The alternating blank squares hold a split line in their centers similar to the split leaf design. The body of the jar holds two distinct interchanging diagonal strips that contain rain, cloud, and mountain symbolism. Strip one is a hachured (crosshatched) band with crisscrossing rain lines with small checkerboard squares spaced throughout. Black triangles frame the bands and may symbolize clouds and mountains. The second strip is a connected checkerboard pattern with eyed cloud motifs.
