Elements of art

Anasazi Bowl c.1100-1250 A.D., originally uploaded by mindtalk.

You are looking at an Anasazi Bowl from around 1100-1250 CE. So it was made several hundred years ago. But it looks both modern and sophisticated. The pattern uses repetitive elements and gently teases the eyes to rove over it.

It’s in the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian at Evanston, Illinois, U.S.
