Very special, Cochiti, NM, Pueblo Pottery Figurine. Charming, Seated Female Cochiti Storyteller, holding 2 children. Storyteller has her eyes closed and her mouth open, as she shares her tales with the two, smiling kids. Visible signature on bottom, "Cochiti, NM." Unfortunately, only part of artist, Rufina Trujillo (1936-2007), signature is visible. (Note: Rufina Trujillo was one of the more skilled Pueblo artists, and she often added accessories, necklaces & belts, to her figurines. Sadly, Rufina died in 2007, of complications related to asthma.) Made of clay and natural, pigmented paint. This piece is from the estate of a collector who frequented the Adobe Potteries in New Mexico and was a personal friend of Rufina's. (The collector had two children; hence, she chose this storyteller figurine, holding two smiling children.) Figurine measures 4" wide x 3" tall. In very good condition, with slight wear to paint in areas most frequently handled, but no chips, cracks, or flaws. Wonderful piece of history!
