Artifacts

I’m in a hurry so I’m just posting something that is more documentary in nature today. This is a small collection of ancient, broken pottery pieces that can be found littering the ground in Chaco Canyon. Ceremonial breaking of pottery was a common practice in the culture here a millennia ago. Today it is illegal to collect any of the artifacts here but I did enjoy studying the variety of textures and designs on the fragments and making a photographic record of some of them.
