Mimbres Beetle Bowl

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

This vessel is a fantastic, though very small, replica of a Mimbres bowl displaying of all things, a beetle!  Intense fire clouds richly enhance this peace.  The design is exquisite and adeptly rendered.  It is difficult to believe that this bowl is a replication; it screams authenticity.

Dimensions:  6 inch diameter

    ‘Excellent reproduction…however, I believe this is a Jumping Spider!
    Eight legs with a plump body and mouth fangs + fabulous body design.
    All typical Jumping Spider attributes.

    • Hello David,
      Thank you for your insight; we had other comments on this also. Another comment was, “You call it a beetle, but a beetle is an insect and only has six legs not eight. I think it is a tick and the fangs are symbolic of its biting power.” We are changing its title to “Fabulous Bug” as not to cause any confusion. As for me, I have no idea what it is; jumping spider or tick? As there were no written records, it is open to conjecture. Yup, I agree it is not an insect. Sorry it took so long to respond, but we were stuck in Texas for a few weeks due to the big storm. Thank you for your interest.
      Warm regards,
      Coral and Starling Black
