Rejected Bahraini pottery

In Linguistics, Decreolization is the process of a shift from creole elements towards a dominant language. Creoles and Pidgins are often generated in environments where many cultures are in constant contact. This piece utilizes Bahraini pottery to illustrate the continuum (post-creole continuum). This can also be applied to the social strata where a dominant class can relate to a service/labor class.
