Native American Acoma Handpainted Wedding Vase


Native American Acoma Handpainted Wedding Vase by Myra Lukee

The Wedding Vase is an ancient vessel still used in traditional Pueblo wedding ceremonies. Each spout of the vessel represents one of those to be wed. 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 wedding vase was very finely handpainted by Myra Lukee from Acoma, NM. Each straight line on this piece of pottery is a prayer for rain. A classic shape and beautifully painted. This piece is NOT glazed inside and CANNOT hold liquid.
