Spinning tops are one of the oldest recognizable toys found on archeological sites all over the world from many cultures. In the early 1900's, a Hopi Pueblo boy was documented skillfully playing with a cottonwood string and whip toy top. Hopi woodcarver Timothy Talawepi's hand-carved and hand-painted, with traditional cottonwood root and lively acrylic paints, toy top is a 3-piece delight. The cotton twine and wooden stick measures approximately 13" long, while the stunning top itself is about 5 1/4" tall and 3" in diameter. The wood base is roughly 4 1/2" wide by 4 3/4" deep.
