Naranjo, Louis – Mermaid Clay Figure
Louis Naranjo was the father of noted potter Mary Trujillo. He was known for his storyteller figures and especially his mermaids. After they built the damn near Cochiti Pueblo, the story began that there were mermaids in the lake. This is one of his classic Cochiti mermaid figures! It is a charming piece and certainly keeps with the story of the mermaid figures. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Louis Naranjo”. Definitely one of his iconic pieces!
