Story Teller

"If you don’t know the trees you may be lost in the forest, but if you don’t know the stories you may be lost in life." —Siberian Elder


"A Storyteller Doll is a clay figure made by the Pueblo people of New Mexico. The first contemporary storyteller doll was made by Helen Cordero of the Cochiti Pueblo in 1964 in honor of her grandfather who was a tribal storyteller. It is basically a figure of a storyteller, usually a man or a woman and its mouth is always open. It is surrounded by figures of children and other things, who represent those who are listening to the storyteller." wikipedia
