Judy Lewis of Acoma Pueblo creates the most wonderful and charming storytellers - hand sculpted, hand painted - incredible detail and facial expressions on mother and children plus bluebirds, butterflies, cats, dogs, ladybugs, different hairstyles and headbands. These are clearly and intentionally created with individual characters by an artist who truly loves her work. This is why her storytellers are so highly valued and collected.

Juanita Yepa is from Jemez Pueblo and we do not have a bio from her. We met her as she was packing up her work at the Governor's Palace in Santa Fe.

This piece really impressed us with its size and complex assortment of children and baskets. There is a touch of poster paint (the green and blue) and some clear acrylic on the hair to give it a deeper black color. It's a wonderful piece measuring 11 inches tall and 9 inches wide with 9 children. Your cost $495 ~ Item #ST344 Click here to see an enlargement. Includes Shipping!
