Native American Indian doll by Mohawk artist, Cathy C. Crandall. Beautiful attention to detail describes the Indian dolls made by Cathy Crandall in her "Earth Dolls" series.
This dolls costuming represents traditional Navajo clothing with a burgundy tunic style top, cinched in with a concho belt over a long maroon velvet skirt. This cloth body Indian doll has head, hands and feet made out of "earth", or clay. The Indian dolls clothing, high cheek bones and prominent features are unmistakably Native American Indian. The painting on this Indian dolls face is warm and rosy with beautifully painted brown eyes.
Her long grey hair hangs past her waist and she is outfitted in beautiful Indian jewelry from the chunk turquoise earrings, to her double strand squash blossom necklace. This Indian doll's buckskin moccasins are simple calf height. Set into a metal stand, this Indian doll will be a wonderful statement piece, or part of a larger collection.
