Antique and ancient collections of fossils, beads, arrowheads, coins, bone, antler, and other interesting mementos characterize this Native American themed putty pot. Putty pots, or memory jugs historically were created as a way for loved ones to memorialize their deceased. It was believed that placing a vessel with items representing the deceased person’s life on their grave would enable their souls to cross over to the next world. Jerry Farrell creates putty pots for their sculptural and artistic qualities. This one is highly ornamented and stands 18″ tall. It is unusual and a curiosity!
