This charming male figure is attributed to Damacia Cordero. Damacia was born in 1905 and died in 1989. She made classic Cochiti figures before the onset of storyteller dolls. This figure appears to be one of her earlier figures. Her work is characterized by a long torso and the elongated noses that begin at the hairline. The slip decoration is often dark.

There is something very appealing about this figure. If one looks at it critically, it clearly fits into the Cochiti figural tradition. What is unusual is the fact that the figure is male rather than female. It has survived the years in excellent condition.
