McElmo Black-on-White - CA. 1100-1200
McElmo Black-on-White is found in the Four Corners area, southwest of Mesa Verde National Park. McElmo patterns tend to be bolder than contemporary Mancos patterns. It appears that this is due to influence from the Kayenta region to the west, whereas Mancos Black-on-White seems to have been the precursor of Chaco area designs based on hatching.
