Tesuque rain gods are small, seated figurines with rounded heads, slender arms, slit eyes, "mitten" hands and extended legs.  Rain gods were one of several types of "gods" made at Tesuque Pueblo for the tourist trade beginning in the 1880's. This book traces the  evolution of the rain god from tourist art to Indian self -identy and expression.
