Created in the traditional Jemez style, this beautiful storyteller figurine by potter Vernida Toya showcases a seated male flanked by seven children. Two of the children rest atop the man’s head, while the other five rest in his lap, enclosed in his arms. The two children at the front hold canteens painted in black with corn stalks on the front, while each of the children and the man are painted in predominantly red and brown with black accents. Each of the children’s mouths are open, as is the man’s, and their eyes are all open and expressive. 6 5/8″ tall x 3 5/8″ wide x 4″ deep.
