In this carving, the maker added a basket on the back of the Ogre and placed a miniature Koyemshi Katsina doll in the basket as if the Ogre has captured one of the Koyemshi who accompanies him on his rounds.  The doll is typically Zuni in style, that is, it has been dressed in clothing.  The arms have been secured to the body and do not articulate.  The doll does stand unaccompanied but could be hung if desired.

 

Condition: this Zuni Pueblo Ogre Katsina Doll is in very good condition with exception that the left arm has been broken and glued.  There is no other damage.

Provenance: this Zuni Pueblo Katsina Doll was sold to a client in 1985 from whom it is now available for re-sale.

Reference: Kachinas of the Zuni by Barton Wright with original paintings by Duane Dishta, 1985.
