Franklin was working on some large jars, and I asked if he could create a set of miniatures for us. He agreed, and they turned out so well.

This is a classic parrot designed bowl. There are two parrots, on the front and the back with panels of Acoma designs in between. Franklin explains, “This pot with the parrot is an old style Acoma parrot. The parrot means strength. It has the rainbow with two colors- orange and pink cloud in the middle. Parrots were brought to Acoma and brought the rain and flowers. Being that they come from the rain forest- on the side is a thunderbird flying down. Parrots and thunderbirds are always put together for the moisture to come and bring the vegetation for animals such as the deer and other wild animals. “
