Pottery Groove

 
This is not about grooves carved in pottery. It’s about pottery in the groove ( of the funky type ). I have  performed music live from the funk genre, so I always get inspired when I see pottery and art that expresses some movement and motion. I’ve included a slideshow with a funky little tune from Donald Fagen just to enhance the style.

Colima dancing figure

Dance, among the most ephemeral of the arts, was central to Mesoamerican civilization. Dance performances, as attested by their depiction on vases and other utilitarian objects such as this whistle above, typically encompassed rhythmic, structured movement, often by a group of people. Music was a vital element, frequently supplied by the dancers themselves. Performances served to bring together the community by reifying shared beliefs of social behavior, recounting seminal histories-both historical and mythic-and incarnating religious ideologies. As communal theater, performers were bedecked in ostentatious costumes that served to remove them from their social identities and the everyday reality of the community. The elaborate costuming and staging also elevated the event from a simple entertainment to an impressive, even iconic spectacle.
