This drawing of a turquoise-encrusted pottery jar was commissioned by Avanyu Publishing Inc. for the cover of the book Zuni Fetishism by Ruth F. Kirk.

The book was published in 1988.
On a fetish jar, the serpent figures and the Mudhead would be carved from deer antler and tied to the exterior of the jar.
The hole near the base would be used for feeding the fetishes residing inside the bowl.
A first-edition copy of Zuni Fetishism is included with the purchase of the drawing.
