Abstract

Sikyatki Polychrome (A.D. 1385–1629) is one of the most easily recognized, yet least understood, pottery types in the Southwest. This article explains the history of the Sikyatki Polychrome type description and how its chronological range was established. It explores the stylistic and iconographic repertoire of Sikyatki Polychrome, and compares pottery painting with rock art, mural painting, and depictions of textiles. I suggest that at least some Sikyatki Polychrome vessels may have been produced by part-time specialists, who most likely worked in family groups. Men may have painted some Sikyatki Polychrome vessels, as well as textiles and kiva murals rendered in the same style.
