Clay Pueblo Storyteller Pottery 3" -Turtle (35nap16)
Pueblo turtle storyteller figurines are unique clay sculptures created by Native American artists that are skillfully handcrafted and vary according to each artist’s imagination and creativity.
Symbolic of the oral traditions of the Pueblo Indians, they depict a story teller and listeners. The turtle has always been a symbol of good luck to Native American culture.
There are listeners which are usually children but also include animals. There is always at least one listener but often there are several positioned on and around the storyteller, even on their head. The listeners sometimes are depicted holding items of significance to the culture like drums, pottery or woven rugs and are gathered around or on the storyteller.
One of the reasons storyteller sculptures are so popular is because of the connection that we all have with our families, children and grandchildren. Collectors, Parents and Grandparents all find these depictions of family and friends interesting and heart warming.
Each piece is unique, no two are exactly alike. This piece would be perfect for any southwest style, western décor or cabin. It would also make a great special gift. Measures approximately 3" diameter, 3" tall.
