An important religious katsina ceremony takes place once a year at Zuni Pueblo in which Sha'lak'o makes an appearance. A beloved messenger from the Rain Gods, Sha'lak'o stands ten feet tall.
Felino Eriacho's all hand-carved and hand-painted, cottonwood and all natural pigments, "Shalako" katsina doll stands at a grand 14 1/4" tall, 2 7/8" wide and 4 3/4" deep, measurements include base. Refined features such as the Shalako's feathered headdress, incised hair and the Zuni Sunface elements all to the exquisite details of this extraordinary and collectible katsina. The subdued beauty of the natural pigment's colors are attractive and totally gorgeous.
