End of the line for the Chaco Anasazi, the last known stone style of Pueblo Bonito here in Devils Chasms deep
in todays Mogollon Rim of central Arizona. Note only is the phallic rock central to the site as it was at Pueblo
Bonito (Threatening Rock which fell in Jan. 1941) but stone work is virtually identical. C.E. 829 - C.E. 1330 and about 250 miles north east to southwest.
The Pueblo Bonito building style can be traced over a 500 year time period in 3 major steps of migration and
to several side branches, generation to generation as agricultural resources, such as soils were degraded
and more importantly the pool of dietary iron depleted.
Anasazi/Membres "Rosetta Bowls"
These two bowls give the basis of symbolic meaning of ceramic design
and color for all southwestern large structure builders 800 CE -1400CE.
Can you determine the basic elements and element differences?
Clue - Female on top in this orientation. As it is round it can be viewed in
any direction. What color is the "female" anthropomorphic big horn sheep,
perhaps deer, or animal body in any case? All other elements are equally important.
This is the Anasazi/Membres (and basis of Tarahumara religion) creation story clearly
illustrated and has an incredible number of identifiable elements. What is the female color?
