Description

The women of the Pueblo tribe are known for their outstanding ability to balance various vessels on their heads for transport purposes. In this photograph, a Pueblo woman carries a large container on her head; this is made effortless by a fiber ring that rests between the jar and her head to protect her scalp and help to steady it.

The design shown on the jar, illustrates the importance of the serpent cult in Tewa life.
