Puerco Black-on-White - CA. 1030-1150
Puerco Black-on-White is characterized by the presence of solid and hatched elements, not interlocking and not necessarily intermingled. Checkerboards and negative lightning motifs are common. Red Mesa motifs such as lining design elements with dots linger, and vertically banded jar necks are common. Puerco is contemporary with Escavada, which has solid linear motifs, and Gallup which is dominated by hatched motifs. The three types differ primarily in painted design.
