Blue Feather - American Indian


Blue Feather, oil on canvas, 20 x 30.

Parrots and macaws have been part of the American Indian culture for centuries. The South Americans traded the birds with their North American friends. Parrots carried prayers for Sun and Rain.

The birds were kept for their feathers and color. The birds were valuable possessions and denoted the wealth of the owner.

  1. It is wonderful, K., nice size, too. I watched a film last evening with a character who was very similar to this, and I was fascinated. Continued good things your way.
