This is a Native American handcrafted miniature Storyteller figure made by the artist Judy Lewis. It originates from Acoma, New Mexico and measures approximately 2.25" x 2" x 1.25". Exquisite quality. It is in excellent condition and was displayed in a glass cabinet in a smoke free home. Detail is amazing with butterfly, lady bugs, bird, children, cat and lizard painted on dress. Please see pictures.

Judy Lewis was born into Acoma Pueblo in 1966 and has been making pottery since 1986. Her primary mentor in learning to make pottery was her sister, Marilyn Ray Lewis. Judy's niche is one where she creates corn maiden, storyteller, and friendship bowl figures with detailed facial expressions. She adds joyous dispositions to some by making accents with appliqué bluebirds, butterflies, cats, dogs, lizards and ladybugs.

In Native American art, a storyteller refers to a ceramic figure adorned with smaller figures of children. In Pueblo society, a storyteller is a real person who communicates the legends of their culture and helps to keep the oral history of the people alive.
