Native American Jemez Made Mudhead Storyteller with Two Little Mudheads and a Basket
Native American Jemez Made Mudhead Storyteller with Two Little Mudheads and a Basket by Felicia Fragua
This sweet Mudhead Storyteller was handmade by Felicia Fragua from Jemez Pueblo. This Mudhead has a basket in his lap and his two little ones in his arms. He is telling stories to them about their colorful cultural history. The storyteller is an adaptation of centuries-old creations in figurine pottery. Cultural traditions and values have historically been passed on by tribal elders through songs an stories geared to teaching the young. It is in these delightful representations that the intense love of the Native American Indians for their children is most clearly shown.
