In keeping with tradition at Cochiti Pueblo, where the first storyteller was created, depicting a male, this piece, by potter Dena Suina, also showcases a seated male, adorned with fourteen children and a few animals for good measure. The piece, featuring a buff background, is painted in black and red accents, as well as a buff, dotted necklace adorning the man’s neck. Fourteen children rest atop the man’s body in various places: one climbing up the back of his head and another, on his braid, while four rest on his houlders, five more are in his arms, and three are atop his legs. A small kitten rests on one foot, a small dog seemingly being held back from going after the kitten by a boy atop the man’s leg. Each child is painted in the same colors as the man, while some hold balls, another a car, one a block, and the child at the top of the head appearing to play with a tiny ladybug. The piece is finished with a red bandanna surrounding the man’s head, his face painted with wide eyes and featuring an open mouth.. 4 3/4″ tall x 2 3/4″ wide x 4 1/2″ deep.
