Felino Eriacho's "Corn-Maiden" katsina doll is intricately hand-carved form cottonwood root and gorgeously hand-painted with all natural pigments.  Felino makes the pigments from plants and minerals he forages, mixing them according to tradition and experience. A practice that can take a full year to complete due to seasonal changes. These natural paints are mesmerizingly beautiful giving the carving a soft aged appearance. The feather on her head, the prayer feathers that run down her back, the blue and red beads around her neck, every element except the rain fan in her hand, is carved from a single piece of cottonwood root. 7 3/4" tall, 2" wide and 2" deep, signed by the artist.
