Known for creating beautiful figurines with unconventional details, Jemez potter Chrislyn Fragua always provides a sense of fun and levity in her art. This figurine by Chrislyn showcases a smiling turtle, its body painted beautifully in geometric patterns in blue, red, buff, and black, and two children resting upon its back. One girl and one boy lay on their stomachs, looking at a book entitled “Life of a Turtle, while adorable ladybugs appear on either side of the book. The turtle is finished with expressive eyes and a flower painted atop its head. 3 3/8″ tall x 4 1/2″ wide x 5 1/8” long.
