Puerco Black-on-red, bowl, Accession AZRU-00001, Catalog #1016, Morris FS 4313. Analyzed by Lori Reed 2006. Sherd temper and thick red slip indicates White Mountain Red Ware.

Image AZRU1-1016 A: closeup view of interior band design section. Image AZRU1-1016 B: closeup of interior band design section. Image AZRU1-1016 C: exterior view showing shape of bowl and perforated lug. Image AZRU1-1016 D: top view showing interior design and lug. Note: matching lug on opposite side of bowl is missing and section is a plaster material reconstruction. Recovered from Earl Morris excavation of Kiva Q, Aztec West Ruin. Morris (1924:257) mentions Kiva Q as a comparison to kivas in the West Ruin Annex: "Kiva A.2 is of a different type, but from its similarity to Kiva Q in the main ruin, which is of known Chaco age, it must be considered contemporaneous with Kiva A.1." No other published description of Kiva Q is available.
