DOG EFFIGY POT, CIRCA 1300AD FOUND AT THE NEISLER INDIAN MOUNDS, TAYLOR COUNTY GEORGIA IN 1928.

Among the most popular exhibits at the Greene Museum was this unique red slip painted dog shaped effigy pot. This pot had been part of the Columbus Museum of Arts and History for many years until descendants of family who had loaned it, sold it to the Greene Museum of Southern History across the river. Columbus Museum has 5 other dog effigies found at Bull Creek burial site. The Bull Creek site was found in 1937, all the Bull Creek pots are described and photographed in an article along with this pot published by Lost Worlds by Gary C. Daniels. Daniels attempts to identify the breed of the dog represented, long thought to be a Chihuahua and Daniels in his article postulates the species a new world breed that dates back at least to 100AD in Mexico. A copy of this article is found in the provenance showing this pot and the other 5 known examples which are still at the Columbus Museum of Art. The pot’s design of black painted swirls on body suggests it was associated with the Creek Indian Wind Clan. Creek tradition holds that the Wind Clan was the most ancient clan among the tribe. This design is also similar in Mexican pottery suggesting that there was a trade among different tribes of the Chihuahua breed of dog that most likely originated in Mexico. Regardless of the meaning of these funerary pots, this is only example known or documented in private hands. This actual pot is pictured or mentioned in several scholarly articles and books, another unique and wonderful piece of early American history such as this will probably never be offered again. SIZE: 13″ h PROVENANCE: Family history states it was found in 1928 washing out of edge of creek by school girl. The family loaned it to the Columbus Museum for many years. From the Greene Museum of Southern History. CONDITION: The pot has no apparent damage and is in the same condition since found in 1928. Columbus Museum shows this vessel in photography also in same configuration and states no conservation or repair where several of their other dog effigies are noted as broken, repaired etc. 9-28023 (20,000-30,000) – Lot 1410
