Description

Wooden Zuni Katsina doll with movable arms. The face has a single black stripe painted across the eyes and ears on an otherwise plain face. Short, black hair surrounds the head and a feather sits atop. A cloth blanket is wrapped around the body and a cloth sash is worn around the waist. Leather moccasins painted blue and red are worn over the feet. A bow is held in one hand and a rattle in the other. This figure is Hututu, named for the sound it yells. (Colton, H. 1959 #175, Wright, B., 1973 #135)
