Entitled The Hunt, Terri began this olla in May of this year, sometimes putting in 12 hr days. It measures about 16 inches high and just over 16 inches across. It tells the story (beginning at the bottom, of the people in the village praying for a successful hunt. Above are the mountains and above that the deer and the hunters, with their bows and arrows. Above that the mountains again, from which they return and a successful hunt. Through Terri's skill, vision and dedication, one of the largest Apache coiled basketry ollas in many decades has been completed.
