Four children and two dogs rest atop the lap and body of a seated female in this adorable storyteller figurine by Jemez potter Bonnie Fragua. The woman rests with her legs outstretched and hands up to her cheeks, mouth open, and eyes expressive. One dog appears to be climbing up her body, while three of the four children and the other dog rest in her lap. The fourth child is slung across her ankles, and all children are depicted with open mouths, while one of the children holds a bone. Each of the figures is painted in red, brown, and black details, and the woman’s hair is pulled back into a low bun. 6 1/2″ tall x 3″ wide x 4″ deep.
