This is a gorgeous, important Plains Native American Indian doll made by well-known Navajo doll maker and Navajo Activist, Kay Bennett. She made dolls from various tribes -- with all the details and finery that was seen in the traditional outfits of the tribes.
This one is particularly beautiful with the full feather headdress and her typical felted face. The doll was setting on a stand but is now off, a peeled glue like hard substance is peeling off the bottom and the moccasin sole is in place. The doll's pretty face is framed by real hair braided into a braid on each side of his face.
The beadwork and adornments on the headdress are particularly lovely. From the bottom of the moccasins to the top of his head (not counting headdress), measures about 18 1/2 tall. He represents much rich cultural history and demonstrates very skilled artistry. Beautiful doll for a collection. I have several Kay Bennett dolls and they are some of my favorites.The item "Gorgeous Antique Plains Doll Artist Kay Bennett Native American Indian" is in sale since Monday, October 28, 2019.
