This three-color Cochiti polychrome olla features white slip with black and red painted decoration. This great oval-shaped water jar is comprised of a high red base, neck pattern, and multiple panels of decoration. The main panel of discussion is a design that includes cloud, rain, lightning, and water bird motifs. Throughout the landscape are cloud banks, with two of them sprouting above plant stems. Underneath the center cloud bank are rain lines (hachures) and crisscrossing rain lines to indicate lightning or rainstorms. A water bird, or possibly a parrot, stands to the right.
