In the late 1800s, Cochiti Potters began making pottery monos, which are tall, standing figures that mimicked and laughed at the outsiders that were coming into their world. These outsiders were make up of missionaries and priests, railroad workers, and Mexican circus performers. A revival of this vessel form can be seen in the work of today's potter: Virgil Ortiz.
