A maiden with feather plume headdress with corn ears and corn seed designs upon her body, reaches outward to parrots gathered around corn plants. Rain clouds approach from the horizon as a dragonfly and rain bird announces the coming rain.

The Pueblo people have traded these colorful parrots from mesoamerican people since 750 C.E., representing a long history of contact among native people in the Americas.
