This traditional storyteller with seven children was created by Jemez Pueblo artist Linda Lucero Fragua. Known for her fine attention to detail within her pieces, Linda constructed this piece entirely by hand from natural clay. Wearing traditional clothing and white moccasins, the storyteller and children are wrapped with a blanket featuring traditional designs around the edges and on the back. Each of the seven children are carefully painted with all-natural pigments and attributes that make them unique. In her typical fashion, Linda has created a breathtaking work of art that will be treasured for generations.
Storyteller measures 6.5" long by 4" wide and stands 7.75" tall. Comes with certificate of authenticity.
Our Guarantee of Authenticity
At the Indian Pueblo Store we guarantee that your purchase is an original and authentic work handcrafted by Native American artists as defined by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990. We ask our artists to complete an extensive certification process, providing a CIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood) card and other documentation of their Native American heritage. Our team of experts carefully inspects every product to guarantee it is handcrafted using traditional, sustainable processes and natural materials of only the highest quality. We record the place and date of each purchase and pride ourselves in paying a fair price that allows artists to make a living practicing their craft. At a time when many commercially-made products are being sold as handcrafted Native American art, our in-depth purchase process allows us to guarantee the authenticity of every unique piece of fine art we offer. For more than 35 years, we have made it a priority to visit artists in their studio or home to purchase their latest handcrafted pieces and learn about their work. We have developed lasting relationships with artists, as well as dealers and collectors, and we take pride in being a trusted destination for fine Native American art.
