Mata Ortiz Handbuilt and Handpainted Wedding Vase with Butterflies by Angela Corona

The Wedding Vase is an ancient vessel still used in traditional wedding ceremonies. One spout of the vessel represents the husband and the other the wife. The looped handle represents the unity achieved with marriage. The space created within the loop represents the circle of life. In the traditional ceremony, the couple drink nectar (prepared by the medicine man) from the spouts to represent the blending of their lives. The pot is a reflection of the ancient rite. This wonderful vase has a handpainted and etched butterflies on either side as well as ancient symbols. Pottery ring included.
