Deming Luna Mimbres Museum (cont) : The Mimbres Collection

Hopefully, you read the first entry on the museum to get some background.  The museum takes its name from an Indian culture that thrived in the area approximately 950 to 1200 A.D. The Mimbres Indians lived in small villages around Deming.  The Mimbres were well known for their beautiful pottery and a large section of the museum is devoted to this.  There are some amazing pieces of art here.  They also have some Apache baskets along with Najavo rugs.




There were two large rooms filled with pottery from the area.





Such beauty...by hand and with limited supplies...such history and insight into a culture long gone by.
