Potters, always women, aimed at beauty as well as utility. Here a mother keeps an eye on her baby as she applies a white undercoat to a bowl. Sister (right) mixes white clay with water. In the background, grandmother oversees the firing of finished pots, while brother fetches firewood. Mummified infant came from such a family. Shrouded in a feather blanket, she was buried with the turkey below, perhaps food for her journey. Over the centuries, in sects stripped blanket and turkey of feathers. KODACHROMESBY WILLIAMRELKNAP.
