KUMEYAAY OLLA Old
Old Kumeyaay clay olla artifact found by pot hunters in western Imperial County in the late 1900s.
The dark areas along the cracks of the antique Yuman pot are original old Indian repairs of a natural adhesive, likely piñon pitch (natural pine glue) applied to the relic. The ancient Kumeyaay-Diegueño pot was probably used after its cracks were repaired and eventually left in the desert.
