Alternate View with bowl resting.Artist Signature - Mary Trujillo, Cochiti Pueblo PotterCochiti Pueblo artist Mary Trujillo made this remarkable female pottery figurine about ten years ago as a special favor to a gentleman here in Santa Fe who, unfortunately, found it necessary to sell it.  She wears a traditional black dress which she is wearing over a blouse with floral-like cuffs that match the design on the edge of the dress. She is wearing a large cape over her shoulders that has embroidery designs on the edges.  Her hands are arranged in position to hold a small dish which appears to be commercially made. Her eyes are closed and her mouth open as if singing.

Mary Trujillo (b.1937) was originally from Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, the daughter of José and Leonidas Cata Tapia. When she married Leonard Trujillo, she moved to Cochiti and has lived there since.  Leonard was the son of Helen Cordero and Helen was Mary's mentor. Mary has been making pottery figurines since the early 1980s.
