Mangas Black-on-White - CA. 1025-1200

Mangas Black-on-White, (formerly Mimbres Bold Face), is characterized by bold designs and relatively wide linework. It is probably ancestral to Mimbres Black-on-White, although it was produced throughout the most Mimbres Phase. The vessels identified here as Mangas Black-on-White are generally much bolder than others recovered from the Mattocks Ruin.
