double parrots and avanyu/ view 2

Double avanyu's encircle the top of the square topped vase, four sided representing the 4 directions.
Parrots are tropical birds, but they were kept here (NM) their remains have been found in our ancestral sites! They were prized for their colorful feathers, which are still used as part of our traditional regalia. Each parrot looks away from one another, one looking to their original homelands, the other looking to their future homelands.
