Katsina Dancer Wood

R Platero Signed Wood Katsina Dancer

SOLD This wood Katsina Dancer holds two swords. The artist carved this figure from wood and added minimal etched and burned details.  The figure has a headdress with three feathers at the top.  It wears a kilt and a collar and stands on a wood base.  The artist signed the base "APACHE R PLATERO".
Katsinas (or Kachinas) are supernatural beings in the Pueblo Indian traditions. The Pueblo tribes create Katsina dolls to give to children. Children use them to learn about the various Katsinas and not to play with.  This Katsina stands about 7″ high on its base.  This figure came from a collection. You will see evidence that the base got wet.  One of a Kind!
