This is a very high quality, Zuni Native American Doll. He is a firmly stuffed leather doll who wears a gorgeous beaded dance leather outfit created with red, white, black yellow, orange, and blue beads. His hands are also created with beads and his moccasins are beaded with red, white, and black beads - very tiny careful stitches. His head, facial features and headdress are all beaded (see photos).This cool doll carries a drum that is made from a hollowed out piece of branch covered with leather on each end. In his hand is a realistic drum beater and in the other a hunting bow without string or a dance stick. This doll is very well-made - skilled and beautiful artistry. It combines techniques of the more recent Zuni dolls that are all beaded along with the larger stuffed leather dolls often seen in other Pueblos and with Plains American Indians.
I have a beautiful Native American Indian doll collection, and this doll is one of them. Antique, unique, hand-made with careful artistry, made in the likeness of the maker who created him - represents rich Zuni cultural history, and additionally; what a wonderful sweet little face!
