This classic small Hopi seed pot was hand-built and hand-painted by Hopi potter Ramon Tahbo Howato. In the fall the women would take the seeds for the next spring and place them in these pots and stack them. These pots would be placed in the corner of their home, stacked so the bottom of one pot would seal the top of the other. This storage technique would save space and keep the rodents from ruining next years' seed crop. This small piece has dragonflies protecting the opening, representing summertime, beauty and rain.
