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. Extra shipping charges may apply.
