Story Teller 1

Story Tellers are hand made sculptures from clay which are made all throughout reservations in Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, and New Mexico (and probably lots more I dont know of). My Mom has a large collection of these and I picked a few of my favorites today to photograph.

Story Tellers jobs were to take care of children while their parents where out hunting or other miscellaneous jobs. Their open mouths represent them singing and telling stories to the children around them (or on them in this case lol).
