mimbres pottery

from the book 'mimbres painted pottery by j.j brody
'a picture starts as nothing and becomes a microcosm, a model universe that has its own physical and structural laws. so long as it exists it transcends whatever aesthetic values motivated its producer or affected the judgement of contemporary or later uses. at different times and places it can be appreciated, disliked or ignored. the only permanent and universal message it can possibly carry and the only key available to objective understanding of it, are embodied in the peculiar logic of its forms and structure'
-j.j brody
