In her well-known and award-winning style, Jemez Pueblo potter Linda Lucero Fragua handcrafted this figuring featuring three Koshare's wrapped in a traditional blanket with one holding a drum. With open mouths, this whimsical handcrafted figurine captures a moment of time and the blessing of their song. This piece is completed with each Koshare adorned with cornhusks atop their pulled back hair.
Linda is known for the attention to detail as well the traditional methods used in creating each piece using natural clay, the traditional coil and pinch methods, and then hand-painting with natural pigments. Each of these steps takes time and demonstrates the artist's mastery of traditional pottery-making methods.
Figurine measures 3-7/8" wide x 5-3/8" long x 8" high. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
