Chrislyn Fragua comes from a talented family at Jemez Pueblo. Jemez is more than an hour’s drive from Santa Fe, to the southwest. Like most Jemez potters, Chrislyn makes her nativities from clay she digs from the earth. Then the clay is cleaned and kneaded, and the figures are formed. This nativity has three wise men holding traditional pueblo gifts of a Navajo style basket, deerskin moccasins and a Cochiti Pueblo drum. All the figures wear robes and shawls painted with traditional designs. The two animals are charming. We call the cow “a Picasso cow”. The tallest figure is five inches (13 cm.).
