Pottery  Antique Clay Figure
This small Antique Clay Figure resembles Native American Rain God statues.  In the early 20th century, the crafter roughly shaped it with natural clay covered with a light colored slip.  He or she added some brown paint marks on the hair (?), around the neck, on the arms and feet and on the object it holds.   The crafter used short incisions for the eyes and mouth with a little shaping for the nose.
The figure sits with straight legs stretched out.  It holds a log-shaped object that may be a container to catch the rain.  Projections from its head may be hair or ears and horns.
You will see that a piece has broken off the top of this figure and chips off the back of one of the head projections and one of the feet.  The left foot is also blackened on the bottom.  Otherwise it is intact and in good condition.
The Figure stands about 3" tall and 2.75" across the legs.
