Bart Gasper Jr.'s outstanding corn maiden katsina is all hand carved of traditional cottonwood root. It is 10 1/2" tall including a base measuring about 4 1/2" in diameter. She wears a blanket with painted Dragonfly
elements that opens to reveal a glorious blue corn body with meticulously incised kernels. Her hair is finely incised and decorated by a gorgeous red feather. The thoughtful details, the vibrant coloration, and the feminine strength of this katsina are incredible! This superb carving is signed at the base by the artist.
