The “Storyteller” is a clay figure that is made by the people of the pueblos to put the tradition of storytelling into an art form. New Mexico's clay art form was started by Helen Cordero in 1964. Her daughter-in-law, Mary Trujillo, has completed her final storyteller for this ornament design. Mary is considered to be one of the most accomplished potters at Cochiti Pueblo and this is truly a unique ornament that is certain to become a treasured part of your collection.
This Cochiti Pueblo storyteller is 7th in a series of official ornaments of the New Mexico Governor's Mansion Foundation.
