Storyteller - Bear with Cub, Miniature by Dorothy Herrera (Cochiti Pueblo)

<< Previous in Pottery Next in Pottery >>
Price: $65.00
Item Number: ATST071

This miniature papa bear is singing stories to the cub crawling up his shoulder. Carrying on a tradition she learned from her late mother, Mary Frances Herrera, Dorothy Herrera makes storytellers featuring charming people and whimsical animals, such as bears, cats and owls.

“Storytellers” are clay figures that depict the elders sharing and teaching culture and history through oral traditions with others, most often the younger generation. Children are often seen climbing on adult laps and sitting and listening with great interest and excitement through the narratives.
