Cochiti Pueblo figure
Late 19th century
Typical of pottery made by the Cochiti Pueblo people in New Mexico, USA, in the second half of the 19th century and possibly by the famous Cochita potter Seferina Sevenna. The figures produced were often humorous and wear waistcoats, standing with hands on hips, head up and mouth open. Animal-shaped pots were also popular Cochiti productions and several examples are displayed in the Cabinet of Curiosities, in The Study.
