Lucario, Rebecca – Plate with Bird and Sprial Wing Design
Rebecca Lucario is known for her delicate and intricately painted pottery. This plate is very intricately painted. In the center is a medallion with a parrot. This is a design often seen on Acoma pottery. Spiraling out from this center medallion are wing designs along with rectangular designs of polished red and fine-line patterns. Typical of her work, the lines are very thin and tightly painted. Note how the designs get larger as they extend to the rim. The plate is signed on the back, “R. Lucario”.
