Ovoid Earrings

Ovoid Earrings


This circular design features both an inner and outer ovoid which fill the space horizontally. It is the single most characteristic shape in all of Northwest Coast Indian Art (also known as Formline Art). It is often employed as a lively eye or body-joint motif. Above and below are additional ovoid shapes, negative or positive surrounded by U, L, and S curves, all typical of classic Formline Design.
