Throughout history, travelers understood the key to survival is access to water. If a water source was not on a traveler’s route, he or she would have to carry water. Every culture has a method for carrying or storing water, whether made of leather, clay, or even hide covered wood. The Indians of the Southwest made triangular ceramic water vessels, thus inspiring the form of the Traveler’s Ottoman. Many of these ceramic water vessels are in the collections at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.
