Santo Domingo Pueblo artist, Angel Bailon (who is married to a Santo Domingo Pueblo man) is allowed to make storytellers because she was born at Jemez Pueblo. These enchanting Angel Storytellers are depicted with wings and praying hands. One-of-a-kind artworks sculpted from hand-gathered clay, these polychrome Angel Storytellers are hand painted with natural pigments. Signed by the artist. Handcrafted in New Mexico.

Though Native American tribes have been making dolls for hundreds of years, storyteller dolls were first made by Cochiti artist Helen Cordero in 1964. Soon other artists began to emulate her open-mouthed storyteller dolls, always holding children or animals. Each artist's clay dolls reflect their personal style and tribal heritage. Now one of the most collectible forms of clay art, storyteller dolls—many from the Jemez Pueblo—are well represented in the collections of our National Museum of the American Indian.
Flowers: 5.5"h. x 3.5"l. x 2.5"w. Geometric: 5.31"h. x 2.13"l. x 3.13"w.
