Entirely handmade, this adorable figurine by Jemez potter Carol Lucero Gachupin showcases a turtle with three children seated atop its shell. The turtle features a base red color painted in black, buff, turquoise, white, and grey accents, while two girls and one boy rest atop its shell. One of the girls, her hair in pigtails, holds a doll, while the girl seated next to her holds a basket. The boy rests with a blanket flung over one shoulder, and all children are painted in red, buff, black, and turquoise accents. The turtle’s shell features step, whirlwind, lightning and rain designs, as well as delicate and fun details such as a clay butterfly and several lady bugs. 4 5/8″ tall x 5″ wide x 6 1/4″ deep.
