This elegant sculpture reflects the Pueblo people’s reliance on the rain clouds. During certain ceremonies the headdress, called a tablita, is worn to represent the clouds. On the reverse side of this sculpture hair flows from the head to the feet. In Pueblo culture the hair represents rain. The engraving on the front symbolizes songs from the ceremonies to induce moisture from the cloud spirits. The necklace represents the beauty of one’s inner self, and the shell represents where life began.
