QUESTION:

I am trying to locate images of the storyteller. I remember seeing a figure with children around it. Is that what they look like? Can you help me?

ANSWER:

Yes, a storyteller figure is usually represented by one large figure surrounded by several smaller figures, representing the storyteller and the children listening to the stories.

As art forms, they are most often found as dolls or ceramic or clay pottery depicting humans, but are also used in jewelry items, and sometimes are depicted as animals.
