A veteran potter, who is continuing the legacy of her mother, Nellie Bica, famous for winsome Zuni owls. This piece is a delightful example.According to Quanita, her grandfather told her that the owl helped the Zuni, in long ago wars, by alerting them to danger. Protector and guardian of the night, the owl ‘s keen vision and fierce hunting skill has made it an important talisman to the Zuni. This wide-eyed, nicely formed and painted fellow is a worthy descendant of the Bica legacy.
