This large four-color Acoma polychrome water jar features white slip with black, red, and orange painted decoration. The all-over-designed jar centers on a continuous patterned band of open black and red rectangles connected to elaborate floral motifs. The motifs are capped at the top and bottom with black half circles that may symbolize clouds. Placed below the unlined rim are four parrots depicted in orange alongside flower forms. The lower portion consists of split black leaves parallel to red fret bands, which represent rainbow bands.
