This is the Rockport Black-on-gray equivalent to the “Espíritu Santo Bay" motif of Rockport Black.  It consists of diagonal straight lines descending from the exterior lips of Rockport Black-on-gray vessels that also contain black lip bands. All statements regarding previous recognition and distribution of the “Espíritu Santo Bay" motif pertain to this motif as well.
