The lot features a matched set of two original mid-to-late-20th Century Santo Domingo Pueblo (Kewa) polychrome painted medium-large pottery olla bowls from the Sundog Bruce VanLandingham collection. The bowls are both signed on the bottom DT / TP (corn cipher picture hallmark) SDP”, SDP meaning Santo Domingo Pueblo. Both have the same iconic traditional geometric polychrome painted pattern in black and white / cream with a red slip base. For an example with the exact same signature see the Santo Domingo, Large Bowl With Horse Design inscribed underside: corn cipher / DT/TP / SDP sold by Santa Fe Art Auction in August 2022 for $600 from The Connie S. Sanchez Estate, California. Provenance: From the renowned Sundog Fine Art Bozeman, Montana collection by Bruce VanLandingham.

Along with being an avid collector, Bruce was also the sole owner of Sundog Fine Art Gallery in Bozeman, which was both part museum and gallery, this piece is directly from the collection. These are each well kept with no major damages and crisp designs, both are signed. Each measures 8.25” across / diameter by 3.25”H. Sold together as a set of two. These are also identical as the next lot 370.
