Familiar signs of an Acoma bird

Egy acoma madár ismerős jelei

The Acoma nation's settlements built on a high rocky plateau area are quite unique, there is hardly any similar settlement in the world.

Besides the fantastic environment and landscape, the heart and soul warming buildings and people it is almost natural that we can find again similar signs of Hungarian hieroglyphs on Acoma vessels which is the predeccesor of Székely rovásírás "rovas writing".

Where else should we find these similarities?

In this article we specify and try to read the signs of an extremely beautiful vessel with bird motives.

Picture 1. Readers who know the Székely runic writing can instantly notice the equivalent pattern of our rhombus shape "ek" (kebel "breast"?) written sign on the bird’s breast. The sharp-eyed reader can also see a number of other written signs on the vessel, because these are not just decorations but they communicate messages, as well.


Picture 2. The Acoma pueblo


Picture3. A nice building on the plateau


Picture 4. This acoma sign on the left shows the arch of the sky above the bird, which is equal to „nagy” (huge/great) word sign in Hungarian hieroglyphic writing. The "nagy” (huge/great) sign’s Hungarian folk version is on the right side, it can be found on a plate from Öriszentpéter (a town in Hungary). Even today Hungarians say Nagy ég! "Great sky! sakes alive!" The epithet of sky could have been nagy "huge/great", and its constant use may have left its mark in the world of signs.

Picture 5. The Acoma sign (left) and Székely ős "ancestor" word sign


Picture 6. The rhombus shape Acoma sign (on the left) and the Székely "ek" (kebel "breast"?) sign


Picture 7. The Acoma spiral ending sign (on the left) and the Székely  "j" (word sign  "good, God, river") sign


Picture 8. What we can see on the head of the Acoma bird is not a crest, but an equivalent of the Székely "m" (word sign magas "tall/high"). It is interesting that a similar sign can also be seen in the company of a bird on the privately owned ring from the Árpádian Age (on the right)


Picture 9. The Székely „ny” (word sign nyugat "west"?) character (on the right) and its equivalent Acoma sign


Picture 10. The Székely "n" (word sign nagy "large/huge") originally depicted a high mountain and turned 90 degrees only under the influence of runic technology /it is possible though, that the two identical signs in the bird's tail are not two ”nagy” (large/huge) signs but a single magas "high" hieroglyph

 Picture 11. The Acoma and Hungarian flower, both recall the Sun (Nap)

The beginning of the text may be the huge arch above the bird’s head, i.e. the word sign “nagy”(large/huge) which depicts the vault of the sky. From this it is evident that the bird under the arch is a zoomorphic figure, or represents a god — for we know from mythology that the sky is held above our heads by god, who is the same as the Milky Way (a tree reaching to the sky).

The crest-like sign almost touching the bird's head is the word sign „magas, magasságos” (high, almighty). However, we have to be careful when reading it, because in the Stone Age presumably only the first syllable of this existed, so at best we can only read this „ma” syllable, which of course could also mean "magasságos" (almighty).


Picture 12. The head of the Acoma bird, along with the magas "high, almighty" sign, reminds us of the most commonly used god-symbol by Indians all over America, i.e. the Joma ligature, on the right a Peruvian Nazca vessel with the Joma ligature.

The bird's head and beak are so curved that it may appear as a spiral shaped „jó” (good) „folyó” (river) sign in our eyes. In this case, based on the pictorial content, we see the name of god which is the same as the river leading up high. However, we are not bold enough to read it this way. If we were not so timid and restrained, we would give the name of god Joma to the root of sign „magas” / "ma" (high) combined with the sign „jó” (good). In this case it would be justified to place it on the head and supporting the sky.

Neither the sign "ek" „kebel” (bosom/breast), ”kobak”(head), „kéreg” (bark) ?/ next to the bird nor the  sign "ny" („nyugat” - west?) have been completely decoded, yet, - so we don't undertake to read them.

The „jó” (good) and „magas” (high) signs on the bird’s tail seem interpretable just  like the „ős” (ancestor) and „Nap” (Sun) signs below the bird.

I leave the compilation of one or more meaningful sentences to the readers. Especially if you are brave and know a few Acoma shamans, you may have a better chance than me. In this case, please call the author on +36(20)534-2780, whose name can be found below.
