Maltese cross design on a large red-on-brown La Junta-style wide-mouthed olla found along Bear Creek in eastern Brewster County well over 100 miles east of La Junta. The design shows the influence of Spanish missionaries on La Junta peoples. This reconstructable vessel was documented by Art Tawater, Archeological Steward for the Texas Historical Commission and partially reconstructed by Tawater and Ellen Kelley. Photo by Richard Walter.
