If you want to see a parrot in this part of the world you have to either go to a zoo or one of the few Mexican restaurants that have one as a pet inside their lobby. The lack of parrots in New Mexico hasn?t stopped Zuni artists Ruddell & Nancy Laconsello from being inspired by these magnificent creatures. This gorgeous bird has been made from colorful cuts of blue Arizona turquoise, black jet, white and gold shell. The bird sits on a green branch that is decorated with blossoms and leafs, plus a Zuni inspired border frames the stunning parrot. All of the work is done in classic mosaic inlay. Heavy silver houses the rich stones and Ruddell has used a braided leather cord and sterling silver tips to finish the piece.
