Small Hohokam Revival Parrot by Laguna Potter Michael Kanteena
This Hohokam-style parrot by Laguna Pueblo master potter Michael Kanteena (1959- ) is exemplary of the style of ancestral revival pottery he is known for. The bottom is signed with his name and Laguna, NM, as well as "Hohokam," indicating he used Hohokam pottery as his inspiration. Hohokam was an Indigenous culture in the Southwest from 300 AD to 1500 AD—they were contemporaries of Ancestral Pueblo and Mogollon people. This charming parrot is traditionally-molded, -fired, and -painted in keeping with the Hohokam style. Although small, the piece has impressive detail, including raised bumps on the front of the bird that mimic those found on the ancient examples Kanteena was paying homage to. The parrot measures 3 1/4" height and 4" length, and is in good condition with a reglued beak.
